Vision

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.

Our vision is:

Psychiatry residents at the University of Wisconsin will compassionately and effectively care for the mental health of individuals and of the community, and will contribute to the field of medicine and to society through scholarship and service.
