Psychiatry Training

Overview

For over 200 years, McLean Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital have shared faculty, trainees, and collaborative research endeavors. Using the extensive resources of both hospitals, the Massachusetts General Hospital/McLean Hospital Adult Residency Training Program in Psychiatry has been designed to prepare resident physicians for the practice of psychiatry in the 21st century.

At the core of each resident’s education is a rich clinical experience, diagnosing and treating a broad range of patients, along a continuum of care and within a variety of treatment settings. Residents learn the various roles of the modern psychiatrist—primary clinician, consultant, team leader, and therapist—with direct and skilled supervision by world leaders in psychiatry. Clinical work and intensive supervision are complemented by a comprehensive curriculum of didactic seminars, rounds, and case conferences.

The Adult Psychiatry Residency Training Program, led by Felicia A. Smith, MD, offers residents unsurpassed training opportunities. Each trainee can select among a vast selection of core rotations to meet individualized needs and interests. The program encourages elective opportunities in all years of training, with an unusually broad range of opportunities for the PGY-4 year, when all residents design their own curriculum. Rotations include community psychiatry, global psychiatry, law and psychiatry, clinical research, mind body medicine, medical education, and psychodynamic psychotherapy.
