Program Mission

Our program is dedicated to developing ethical and professional values, and training clinically sound, collegial, culturally sensitive and academically impactful physicians. We promote self-leadership, resilience and well-being during training and beyond. We train leaders in behavioral health who inculcate lifelong learning by critically evaluating new and established approaches to assessment and treatment of psychiatric disorders, contribute to research and to educating the next generation of physicians. We reflect the institution's culture of diversity, compassion, innovation, respect and results in providing clinical care and participating in research. This is achieved through formal and informal curricular activities through-out the training period, providing mentorship for scholarly activities and instruction on wellness. Our program is dynamic by design and we welcome residents who have an interest in actively participating in this educational enterprise.

Program Aim

The aim of our general psychiatry program is to train residents in the art and science of psychiatry, with the ultimate goal of producing excellent, competent, culturally sensitive and ethical psychiatrists capable of managing a broad spectrum of psychiatric illnesses while contributing towards the well-being of their patients, families and the broader society.
