The Stanford Psychiatry Residency Training Program offers a unique blend of intimacy and opportunity, coupling a sense of collegiality, cohesiveness and deep care about residents' individual development with a breadth of experiences that characterizes a large academic center like Stanford University. Competencies in clinical training are systematically defined across services with emphasis in combining the application of biological therapeutics, psychotherapies, and social interventions that impact the life circumstances of our patients. Clinical care is provided in the context of a critical scholarly approach to the field.
Our curriculum features a scholarly concentration program that allows residents to pursue individualized training in areas of their interest. Unique opportunities are available in community psychiatry, global health, neuroscience, neuropsychiatry, addiction psychiatry and psychosomatic medicine. Residents are supported in cultivating careers that involve leadership, specialization, and academic growth.
At its core, our philosophy places residents as central participants in shaping and defining their training experience. We strongly promote resident involvement in program improvement, and prioritize resident well-being during training. Our program is dynamic by design and we welcome residents who have an interest in actively participating in this educational enterprise.
