In the UT Southwestern Neurology/Psychiatry Combined Residency Program, resident education is one of our primary foci.
We have incredible faculty who are devoted to teaching. Some of these include:
- Roger Rosenberg, M.D.
- Adam Brenner, M.D.
- Larry Thornton, M.D.
- Benjamin Greenberg, M.D.
- Deborah Friedman, M.D.
- Steven Vernino, M.D.
- Carol Tamminga, M.D.
Dedicated didactic days are built into both the neurology and psychiatry programs, with psychiatry didactics on Tuesday afternoons, and neurology didactics on Thursday afternoons. We make an effort to ensure combined program residents may attend both sessions every week when clinical duties allow.
Grand Rounds are on Wednesdays and include experts from both fields lecturing on a wide variety of topics. Psychiatry Grand Rounds are broadcast to Parkland for those who cannot make it to the primary venue.
Our program is in a constant state of self-evaluation. Residents are encouraged to bring any concerns or areas for improvement to the attention of the program directors. It is our objective to maintain an appropriate balance of education and service. This promotes resident well-being, and importantly allows residents to have a say in their own course of training.
