The psychiatry residency is a four-year, fully accredited training program. The program includes clinical rotations as follows:
Clinical rotations in the first year include inpatient psychiatry, internal medicine/child health, child psychiatry, geriatric psychiatry, addiction psychiatry and consultation liaison psychiatry.
Clinical rotations in the second year include inpatient psychiatry, child psychiatry, consultation liaison psychiatry, forensic psychiatry, neurology and emergency psychiatry. Additional rotations in addiction, geriatric and forensic psychiatry may be assigned.
Most residents will complete their 12-month outpatient year during their third year. Outpatient experiences included University psychiatry, VA outpatient and community psychiatry placements. A weekly psychotherapy specific clinic will be included.
Residents in their fourth year will complete remaining requirements for program completion and also complete elective experiences. Residents may also choose to transfer into a child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship in their fourth year.
