The centerpiece of our residency training programs is the personal interaction between residents and faculty in the clinical arena.  Our faculty are committed to this educational process and bring the necessary depth and diversity to teaching and supervision in all major theoretical paradigms within our specialty.  Abundant opportunities are provided for residents to maximize their professional development through research, reading, reflection, and scholarship.  Our residents seek out and work closely with motivated faculty members who share their academic and subspecialty interests.  Our educational goal is to train psychiatrists who are equipped to provide the highest quality of patient care both now and in the future.  Residents receive a firm grounding in psychodynamic principles applicable to their patients, as well as biological determinants of behavior and methods of treatment. For example, in 2015, our program ranked first among 53 psychiatry residency training programs whose PGY-3 and PGY-4 residents took the Columbia University Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Competency Test.  There is also a research track that provides specialized research training within the general psychiatry residency.

We believe our training program is the best in the western region due to the high quality of our residents and faculty, the emphasis on education in our department, and the preservation of all aspects of clinical psychiatry in the training of our residents from psychotherapy to high-tech brain imaging.  If you are interested in high quality training in a family-like atmosphere, check us out.
