Arthur T. Carter, M.D.

Geriatric Psychiatry Fellow


Dr. Carter is a Geriatric Psychiatry Fellow of the department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University School of Medicine and Stanford/VA Alzheimer Research Center.

Dr. Carter obtained his Bachelor of Science with a major in Chemistry and minor in Biochemistry at the University of Northern British Columbia. After concluding his undergraduate studies, he was accepted into an international medical school at Ross University School of Medicine where he completed the first two years of his education in Dominica in the West Indies and then concluded the remainder of his two years of clinical training in rotations at various hospitals in New York City. On successful completion of medical school, he continued his training in adult psychiatry through New York Medical College at Metropolitan Hospital Center in New York City after which he was accepted into the Geriatric Psychiatry Fellowship at Stanford University School of Medicine. His interest in the aging population started when he was in medical school where he found himself listening to the many stories of the elderly patients for whom he cared during training, which was later cultivated during his residency where he found himself gravitating towards these patients in the hopes of improving their lives by optimizing both their medical and psychiatric health which ultimately influenced his decision to pursue further training in Geriatric Psychiatry.

In his leisure time, Dr. Carter enjoys going on hikes, cycling, running, and staying active. Also, he is one of ten children in his family and enjoys spending as much time with them as possible back at home where he grew up in British Columbia Canada.
