General Psychiatry Residency Program

UT Southwestern Psychiatry Residents
The UT Southwestern Department of Psychiatry strives to graduate our residents at the cutting edge of all aspects of psychiatry, training outstanding evidence-oriented clinicians and providing excellent clinical care to patients.

Our Psychiatry Residency Program offers an innovative and exciting didactic and clinical/experiential base for training. Faculty and residents work together, balancing clinical service and education. We have a patient base that is diverse in every way: ethnoculturally, socioeconomically, and by clinical service (private, public sector, community, etc.). This variety ensures that our residents will be able to practice psychiatry anywhere with anyone.

Our Mission: HEAR

The UT Southwestern Psychiatry Residency Program trains diverse physician leaders in Healing, Education, Advocacy, and Research. We HEAR our patients from all backgrounds as we champion their recovery.

Resident Wellness

Resident Wellness Activity

We constantly look for ways to support our residents because we believe patient care is best provided by psychiatrists who have balanced and satisfying lives. Our vigorous Psychiatry Residents Organization runs many activities: "Families" program, social activities, weekly lunch meeting, yearly retreat day, regular movie nights. Our residents are leaders in initiating support programs for underrepresented minority residents, Muslim residents, and LGBT residents through the HEAL program (Housestaff Emerging Academy of Leaders). T-Group, an unstructured Training Group that emphasizes mutual support, problem solving, and experiential learning about small group processes, is an important source of peer support led by experienced group therapists. Our residents have access to the UT Southwestern Resident Wellness and Counseling Center and low-fee psychodynamic psychotherapy at the Dallas Psychoanalytic Center.
