The Department of Psychiatry, in association with the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and the Office of Continuing Professional Development in Medicine and Public Health are proud to host the 2nd Annual Update and Advances in Psychiatry on October 10 - 11, 2014 at the Monona Terrace, Madison, Wisconsin.


Our Resident Program

We believe that a psychiatry residency should be a rigorous but humane environment in which one can develop into a highly skilled psychiatrist. We will help you master the clinical skills and knowledge base necessary to practice successfully. We emphasize collegiality, communication and responsibility so that you can develop an identity as a professional and as a leader. We strive to be mindful of your need to balance professional and personal responsibilities and goals.
