Psychiatry Residency

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.

The mission of the University of Wisconsin Psychiatry Residency is (a) to help residents learn to compassionately and effectively prevent, diagnose, and treat mental illness and their sequelae, and (b) to facilitate residents’ contributions to the field of medicine and to society through scholarship, education, and service.
