Joshua Nathan, MD

Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychiatry

Dr. Nathan received his BS in Psychology from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He attended medical school at the University of Illinois at Chicago. His psychiatry residency was at Brown University in Providence, RI. After completing residency training, he became an assistant professor at Brown University, and continued to work at Rhode Island Hospital. Through his employment at RIH, he provided psychiatric treatment to inmates in the RI Department of Corrections system. As a Brown faculty member, he taught medical students and coordinator the hospital’s psychiatry clerkship for Brown Medical School students. Upon returning to Chicago in 2009, Dr. Nathan initially joined the Loyola University Chicago faculty, and worked at the Hines VA Hospital. While there, working with young soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, he further developed his interest in working with young adults and their unique psychiatric needs. Dr. Nathan jumped at the opportunity to join the faculty at his alma mater when the opportunity arose.

Dr. Nathan has continued to provide psychiatric care to many undergraduate and graduate students within UIC and other colleges, and to young adults early in their careers. He has also found a new interest in working with HIV patients, as a psychiatrist embedded in outreach clinics around the city of Chicago. He has also continued to develop his interest in teaching, by conducting seminars for residents on various topics in psychiatry, and by providing 1-on-1 psychodynamic supervision for residents.

Dr. Nathan has intermittently pursued his interest in psychiatric issues and themes in media, especially movies and televisions. He has long considered the portrayal of mental illness in media as vital component of stigma in mental illness – either as an instrument to propagate stigma, or as a tool to battle it.
