About This Program

The psychiatry residency training program at Vanderbilt University, in affiliation with the Nashville VA hospital, offers a general psychiatry track, child and adolescent psychiatry fast track, and a research track. The program has a strong commitment to diversity. Our program emphasizes the integration of neuroscience into formulation and clinical reasoning. Research, academic leadership, and teaching are major areas of emphasis for our residency. Clinical training is broadly diversified with many elective opportunities to permit residents to explore their interests. Training sites include inpatient, outpatient, general hospital, community, integrative, and homeless psychiatry settings. The department has a broad range of research opportunities for residents who work closely with a highly collaborative faculty. Our vision is to train leaders of psychiatry who generate and implement new knowledge in the service of a more personalized care of the person who struggles with mental illness. The program seeks academically accomplished, mature, and compassionate residents.
