About This Program
The major goal of our residency training program is to prepare our graduates to be competent, well-informed, caring clinicians and scientists who are prepared to manage any challenge in psychiatry by utilizing the latest scientific information and by critically applying sound reasoning skills. The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience at the University of Chicago has a long and highly respected history of clinical, teaching, and scientific excellence. Many of its former graduates are current and former Chairs of Departments of Psychiatry and leading researchers in psychiatry. The University of Chicago emphasizes intellectual discourse, interdisciplinary work, and collaborative education and research. The University of Chicago is often known as the teacher of teachers. Education is of central importance in our Department: we are all teachers and students at the same time, for it is through teaching that we learn best.
