Adult Psychiatry Residency Program

The Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Neurosciences takes great pride in its role in training the next generation of general psychiatrists, child and adolescent psychiatrists, geriatric psychiatrists and addiction psychiatrists. Mentorship and teaching is at the heart of our Department's mission. As a Department in the Wayne State University School of Medicine, our top priority is medical student and resident education and training the next generation of psychiatrists. We recognize at the medical student level that most students will not become psychiatrists. However, we see them as ambassadors to educate others about the new era of modern biological psychiatry and how our field is beginning to bridge successfully with traditional academic medicine with evidence based approaches at the forefront. We also have a graduate Ph.D. program, the Translational Neuroscience Program (TNP) which focuses on training scientists in translational neuroscience and psychiatry.
