Education

Faculty

The department is comprised of a large number of faculty with wide ranging interests, training and responsibilities and is renowned throughout the US and the world. Our department is consistently ranked as one of the top 15 hospitals in psychiatry (US News & World Report), and it is one of the top 10 departments in NIH grant dollars. One of the key missions of the department and its faculty is to train the next generation of psychiatrists in order to better serve individuals afflicted with mental illness. We have approximately 90 full time faculty members about half of whom are engaged to a significant degree in resident education. To help you navigate through such a large list of people we have categorized our faculty into several groups. Key faculty sit on our educational policy committee and/or hold leadership positions in the running of rotations. You will likely see all these individuals during your training with us. Other faculty that supervise residents on clinical rotations are listed as either Child or Adult, depending on their specialty. All these individuals help train residents but not all residents rotate with them. Faculty who either do clinical care but do not routinely supervise residents or who focus on research are placed in a final “Other” group. These faculty may still be used by residents for their education if the resident so chooses.
