The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Johns Hopkins Medicine has occupied a distinguished place in the field of psychiatry since the opening of the Henry Phipps Psychiatric Clinic in 1913. Today, we continue our long tradition of excellence in patient care, teaching and research.
Our clinical research programs, which are closely tied to patient care, range from efficacy and treatment-response studies to clinical trials and epidemiology. The basic research we conduct encompasses bioinformatics, genetics, neuroscience, and molecular biology. All of these efforts strive to unlock the causal pathways to the major psychiatric conditions and to use this knowledge to develop practical means to improve recognition, diagnosis, and treatment of these conditions.
