About This Program
MUSC Psychiatry Residency is one of the larger psychiatry programs nationally, with a total of 68 trainees across the core residency programs. In addition to General Psychiatry (4 yrs) we offer combined training in Medicine/Psychiatry (5 yrs) and Neurology/Psychiatry (6 yrs). The program is based at our main campus in beautiful downtown Charleston, at the Institute of Psychiatry, the Medical University and Children’s Hospitals and the on-campus VA Medical Center. Strong Community Psychiatry experience is obtained through our longstanding affiliation with the Charleston-Dorchester Mental Health Center, a public mental health center only a few miles from campus. Outpatient and Psychotherapy training has grown beyond the traditional office setting to include highly relevant integrative care opportunities such as- Women’s Mental Health, HIV Collaborative Care, Rural Telepsychiatry and several “Medical Home” settings. Residents receive training and experience in a range of Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioral Therapies with expert supervisors and comprehensive didactics.
