The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine at Prisma Health strives for excellence in the training of psychiatric residents.
In pursuit of this goal, our efforts are focused on ensuring that each resident gets what they need to practice competent, state-of-the-art, modern psychiatry after graduation. Specifically, psychiatry residents will have the knowledge, skills and attitudes that ensure competence in the six Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education General Competencies.
We seek to ensure that our graduating residents have sufficient knowledge and skill to evaluate, diagnose and treat adults and their families in individual practice and by the leadership of the treatment team. The graduates will critically evaluate the expanding literature on developing biological, psychological, family and social and cultural treatments and adapt their practice to reflect the growth of the field.
Clinically oriented teaching is stressed throughout the program. The program promotes versatility in the resident while preserving an in-depth understanding of the field. Residents are exposed to a broad range of psychopathology, in a variety of clinical settings and sub-specialty areas.
