The challenges and stresses of daily life, aging, building a healthy family life or finding alternatives to chemical dependency are all conflicts that can, at times, be difficult for people to manage. Recognizing that behavioral health and psychiatric services are an important component in the provision of healthcare services in the United States, the School of Health and Medical Sciences offers the General Psychiatry Residency Program. This program, which began in 2007, provides physicians in training with the knowledge, technical experience and humanistic skills necessary to provide high-quality, compassionate patient care.
The multidisciplinary program is divided over the post-graduate years (PGY) 1, 2, 3 and 4 levels.
We offer educational opportunities at several regional hospitals for post-medical school physicians. Residency and Fellowship programs are offered in specialty areas, such as internal medicine, neurology, orthopaedic surgery and psychiatry. In response to society's rapidly changing healthcare needs, our emphasis on interprofessional education prepares healthcare leaders of tomorrow to focus on patient-centered care.
