Our Mission and Values
Our mission is threefold: First, to help our residents develop into exceptional and compassionate psychiatrists who are well-versed in both biological psychiatry as well as psychotherapy; Secondly, we prioritize graduating our residents into fulfilling careers where they can best serve those in need; Finally, we hope to inspire and support our residents to become leaders in their field. To this end, we expose all of our residents to a broad range of psychopathologies, treatment modalities and clinical settings, while simultaneously catering to the specific academic and career interests of the individual learner. We aim to foster professional growth by balancing quality teaching and attentive supervision with progressive autonomy of clinical experience.
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.
