Division of Adult Psychiatry

Thank you for your interest in the University of Utah Psychiatry Residency Program. This is an exciting time to join our department! In the last two years our department has moved into the expanded University Neuropsychiatric Institute (UNI), the Veterans Medical Center has opened a new psychiatric outpatient building, and we have expanded our training program to eight residents a year.

Training in Utah allows you to live in one of the most beautiful locations in the United States and at the same time experience a rigorous, academically based education in psychiatry. We are dedicated to providing a balanced training with strong experiences in psychotherapy as well as biologically based treatments.

Most of our residents are involved in research during the course of their training, and many have publications by the time of graduation. Our residents are enthusiastic, well rounded, and collegial. We encourage diligence during work hours, but also believe that having fun during time off is integral to a healthy lifestyle. We hope you have the opportunity to visit our department and learn more about us.
