Excellence in All Areas of Psychiatry
With our large faculty, we have expertise in virtually all areas pertinent to modern psychiatric practice, ranging from psychoanalysis to neurobiology to psychiatric epidemiology. This includes areas rarely found in psychiatry departments such as medical ethics, health economics, family systems studies, psychotherapy research, neurogenesis, and psychoneuroendocrinology.
We also take special joy in collaborating across interest areas, resulting in such papers as "Should psychotherapy be considered a biological treatment?"
