Residents at IUPDP

Ashley Overley, MD

"My experience at PARC was a highly formative part of my training experience. At PARC I felt like I was able to deliver high quality patient care,  staffing was educational and dedicated to evidence-based practice, and I also had an opportunity to learn more about how clinical research is conducted participate in research myself. Journal clubs at PARC are one of the most in-depth forums that I had as a resident to discuss research literature relevant to my clinical practice. PARC is dedicated to raising the standard of care through innovative and evidence-based practices with staff that are highly motivated and dedicated to their work. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work at PARC and am very appreciative of their investment in both resident education and patient care."

Current Residents

Gena's interests are centered around Autism spectrum disorders and she is hoping to ultimately end up in a clinical scenario that aids in the centralization of services (pediatric/nutrition/genetics/psychiatry) for children and families within the Autism community at large. Gena's other major interest are medical missions and global health. She enjoys travel, spending time with her husband Jake, and working with special needs children.

sgerber.JPGSophie Gerber, MD - PGY 3


Sophie realized in medical school that she has a passion for treating both physical and mental problems. She believes the two are crucially linked and one cannot be properly treated without fully understanding and addressing the other. Ideally she would like to link this passion with her other main passion in life: learning about other peoples and cultures both in the U.S. and all around the world. 
In her future career, Sophie would like to get involved in public health on an international level and advocate for the development of both under-addressed pediatric and psychiatric needs ideally focusing in on a specific health issue. Issues that have crossed her mind include the childhood obesity epidemic, HIV/AIDS and PTSD.

kschroeder.JPG Kristen Schroeder, MD - PGY 3


Kristen discovered a passion for learning about the huge impact mental health has on a person's overall physical well being and its influence on ones approach and perception of their surroundings especially children with their whole life to live. Similar to how she developed an avid interest in other cultures to better understand our world, she was excited to find the Triple Board program for the holystic approach to treating the whole child. 
Once she has completed her training, her future interests include combining practicing pediatrics and psychiatry in an inpatient setting, in trauma and abuse cases, and advocating healthcare policy. Always the adventurer, she loves travelling and outdoor sports so any time outside of residency she tries to finagle her friends and family to spend quality time pursuing either of those passions.

Past Residents

Residency training in both pediatrics and psychiatry aligns with
her ideology of medicine by focusing on treating the whole child, mind and body. She believes that assisting individuals to understand the biological and psychosocial dynamics of health, while providing treatment, leads to greater positive life outcomes for patients as well as their families. Bridget and her partner welcomed their first child at the end of 2012. Aside from making that sweet baby laugh, Bridget enjoys attending the theater, cooking, hiking, biking, and watching reruns of Emergency on Netflix.

His interest in medicine blossomed and he decided to combine his passion for psychiatry, medicine and working with kids with a Triple Board residency.  He is also interested in the intersection of psychiatry and medicine, the mind-body connection, and the psychological aspects of trauma and abuse. Outside of residency he enjoys spending time with his wife, three children, and new dog exploring Indianapolis and the Midwest. He has also dabbled in vehicle restoration, and is an avid reader when he gets a chance.

"I am very pleased to be working at PARC, and particularly enjoy this patient population.  My interests are primarily inpatient settings with high acuity which has strong carryover to this clinic.  I am participating in multiple research projects in the clinic as well, and currently have an active interest in studying the association between violence and psychosis.  I enjoy working with the staff and physicians at PARC, and am getting significant exposure to different research and educational styles. However, the single greatest reason that I appreciate PARC is the patients, as they have so much to teach me about their disease, daily lives, and my interactions with them."
