Welcome to the Wayne State University/Detroit Medical Center Psychiatry Residency program!

Our program philosophy is to view the patient from biological, psychological and social spheres. We aim to train well-rounded clinicians and innovative researchers, and our residents are supported as they develop their own unique interests and career goals. Thus, we offer a wide array of training opportunities including a cutting edge research track, active collaboration with the Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute, and advanced psychopharmacologic interventions.

This website will provide a basic overview of the program curriculum; clinical, research, and teaching opportunities; as well as residents’ perspectives on the diversity of Detroit. The website itself is completely resident-driven, and almost all content and images is the work of current residents, with some input from faculty.
