A three-part system of broad and intensive clinical experience, individual supervision, and didactic seminars anchors the general psychiatry residency program. The educational program is divided into three major areas:
- Acquisition of clinical skills
- Establishment of a psychiatric knowledge base
- Personal growth of the individual as he or she develops as a psychiatrist
The program emphasizes in-depth understanding of the individual patient. This is the foundation for the program’s exceptional competence in the teaching of psychotherapy, biological psychiatry, research, and the realities of today’s rapidly changing healthcare delivery systems. Residents graduate from the program well prepared for a wide range of psychiatric careers that may include research, teaching, and hospital-based or private practice. The four-year program in general psychiatry has eight positions available in each class.
