Current Residents

Message from our Chief Residents

Northwestern University has been our institution for the last three years and the psychiatry program has truly become our home! Our unique and varied experiences in training in addition to the wonderful resident cohort and superb program directors (Dr. Anzia and Dr. Lloyd), have made this such a rich experience. Our program offers all-day Wednesday didactics, long-term outpatient cases, and vast opportunities to get involved in research and teaching. Furthermore, Chicago is a beautiful, international renowned city with endless things to do, eat, see and experience. We love to plan outings with the other residents such as checking out new restaurants, going to “movies in the park” and concerts, as well as planning events at Dr. Anzia’s home.

We are honored to be the chief residents for 2015-2016 and look forward to meeting all of the applicants this year. We know you will find Northwestern as special as we do!
