Wayne State is a unique program with an abundance of opportunities and a very diverse patient population. Because we have rotations at the VA and at DMC, we are exposed to a very diverse pathology, from psychosis to mood disorders to anxiety disorders to PTSD and many more. Upon graduating, this program has us ready for independent practice. No matter what career you want, Wayne State has the tools and resources to get you there. If you like psychotherapy, we are a psychotherapy-focused program with an abundance of patients, fellowship programs, and supervisors. If you are more psychopharmacology-oriented, we have nationally renowned faculty in that area and during training, we are given the autonomy to try a new wide variety medications. If you want a career in academics, you will love our emphasis on scholarly activity and multiple opportunities to do research. In fact, many residents have won awards for their research. If you are interested in private practice, the faculty here will give you a patient load and teach you how to run your own clinic. This program also stands out from others because of its curriculum: General psychiatry during first year, followed by most specialties during second year. This way, residents know what specialty they want to pursue at the end of their second year. Finally, we have a great group of co-residents who love to have fun. We do movie nights, picnics, retreats, and much more socializing (yes, there is time to socialize! The work-life balance is great!)
