MAJOR DEBORAH ENGERRAN AND CAPTAIN RONNIE ROBINSON

Clinical Psychology

Maj. Engerran: I enjoy what I do. I enjoy coming to work everyday.

Capt. Robinson: I’ve always wanted to do psychology because I thought the human behavior was probably the most fascinating thing in the world and I thought if I have this skill set what better population to help then, my brothers and sisters in arms.

Maj. Engerran: One of the missions besides taking care of Soldiers and their families is to grow the next batch of medical specialties. So we have the ability to bring in what we would consider Subject Matter Experts in a particular discipline to run two-day courses to train us in the latest research or latest techniques.

Capt. Robison: I went to graduate school, I reenlisted into the Reserve, I got Tuition Assistance there, which covered $10,000 dollars of the cost.

Maj. Engerran: I was awarded a two-year fellowship where I continued to draw my salary as a captain full-time and yet my only responsibility was to basically be a student.

Capt. Robinson: I would say in our environment it’s a rather unique opportunity to work with neurol, psych, and social work and family advocacy or surgeons, or what ever is needed for that Soldier. This new challenge is to try to help this person to stay resilient and keep themselves together, and operate to their maximum capacity in that environment.

I think that what we do is all for people, hope. When its time for them to walk out on their own, they’re able to do so.

Maj. Engerran: The opportunity to support Soldiers and Airman when they’re doing their duty for their country and to be there for them is probably the most meaningful thing that I’ve probably ever done.
