General Psychiatry Residency Program

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.
