General Resident Seminars

The Tuesday Resident Seminar series is designed to give residents the basic fund of knowledge needed for a psychiatrist practicing today. The seminars are grouped into 6 disease modules, integrating basic sciences with clinical sciences. Two modules are taught each year over a 3-year cycle. The series is called Psychiatric Disorders - Benchside to Bedside and includes modules on schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, unipolar depression, anxiety disorders, substance abuse, and dementia. In addition, courses in psychological models, psychological testing, and personality disorders round out the Tuesday Resident Seminar Series. Specific titles for the last three years are listed below.
