Welcome From the Director
Welcome to Psychiatry at the University Of Cincinnati!
I appreciate your interest in our Psychiatry Residency Program and all that it has to offer.
At the University of Cincinnati, we have a passion for training future leaders in the field of psychiatry. This website provides detailed information about the diverse clinical experiences, intensive psychotherapy training and cutting edge evidence-based psychiatric research used to train our residents. However, I strongly believe it is the enthusiasm for psychiatry of our faculty and residents that will compel you to come to UC.
University of Cincinnati enjoys a rich history of psychiatric training going back to 1930. Our early reputation was built on the strength of our psychotherapy training. Members of our department founded the Cincinnati Psychoanalytic Institute which remains a strong partner in training our residents. Over the last three decades our biological research has earned international recognition. We have world renowned faculty specializing in the treatment of mood, PTSD, anxiety, eating, substance use and cognitive disorders. The confluence of these resources provides our residents a uniquely well balanced training experience.
We are excited to train a diverse group of academically talented individuals in our extensive four year curriculum which includes over 340 lectures designed to cover all content areas of the ABPN Psychiatry Certification Exam. It also ensures competency in psychopharmacology and psychotherapy. Our residents have the opportunity to practice in a variety of health systems including the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, the Cincinnati VAMC, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Summit Behavioral Healthcare, the Hamilton County mental health system, UC Student Health Clinic and the Resident Psychotherapy Clinic, the resident's own private practice. This diversity offers unique opportunities for participation in research and unparalleled exposure to a variety of patient populations. Each site varies in its model of supervision and level of resident autonomy. Faculty in each setting are invested in working with residents.
The greatest strength of our program is the sense of community we share. Our residents' camaraderie and active voice within the program creates an atmosphere where they readily work together with our faculty both academically and administratively. Faculty and residents alike are committed to supporting one another, advocating for patients and giving back to our community locally, regionally and nationally. That is why at UC, IT IS ALL ABOUT COMMUNITY!
Please enjoy exploring this site, which we have created to provide you with a detailed overview of our curriculum, faculty, residents, and our unique Midwestern community!
