Our Mission

To develop within our residents a standard of clinical excellence for the 21st-century practice of psychiatry
by integrating scientific advancement, clinical artistry, and an understanding of the complex needs of the psychiatric population. We strive to provide residents with an outstanding and balanced educational experience through emphasizing biological, psychological, and sociocultural aspects of psychiatry.

To foster professional growth in academic, leadership, administrative, and clinical experiences through
intensive mentoring and exposure to customized experiences based on resident interest. 

To foster community engagement and commitment to the populations we serve.

To encourage self-reflective learning and enable personal growth through an emphasis on mutual and
supportive feedback mechanisms and opportunities for furthering self-awareness.

To work to dismantle systems of oppression in our residency program by promoting anti-racism, anti-xenophobia,
anti-ableism, anti-queerphobia, and anti-transphobia; affirming all identities within our residency community;
and fostering a culture of safety, belonging and empowerment in celebrating our collective experiences.
