About This Program
The MSBI Psychiatry Residency clinical philosophy blends the most current thinking from the biological, psychodynamic, and sociological perspectives. The resident becomes proficient in applying these perspectives to the treatment and understanding of their patients and to understand current research and developments in the field. Under close supervision, the clinical and academic assignments are designed to gradually help the residents integrate their knowledge and experience. The educational process is enriched by an extensive range of clinical and research activities, didactic seminars, grand rounds, clinical conferences, and journal clubs. While providing a rigorous academic and clinical program, the department fosters a warm sense of community. Residents quickly sense the ease with which they can approach staff for advice and support. Their involvement in the department is encouraged and enhanced by weekly resident lunches and resident-organized social events.
