There is a dire shortage of psychiatrists in Arizona, and, in fact, the Department of Psychiatry at The University of Arizona College of Medicine provides the only accredited training programs for adult, child & adolescent psychiatry in Southern Arizona.
The goal of the Psychiatry Residency Program is to enable residents to develop a broad range of psychiatric skills so they can effectively and competently practice psychiatry in a wide variety of settings. With multiple hospital training sites including community mental health, VA, the University hospital, and private hospitals, residents get a broad range of training to prepare for a variety of careers and fellowships.
We believe that a comprehensive understanding of children and adolescents is essential to provide ethical and compassionate psychiatric treatment. We strive to provide care that is evidence-based and informed for each individual that we serve.
