General Psychiatry Residents


The Residency in Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at The Johns Hopkins Hospital is designed to provide a comprehensive and broad-based education in clinical psychiatric diagnosis and treatment. The didactic portion of the curriculum is organized to present a body of knowledge which comprises current thought in psychiatry. The clinical exercises and experiences are organized to provide clinical expertise in evaluation of the entire range of psychiatrically ill patients and competence in psychiatric treatment, using the fundamental modalities of therapy currently available. Recent graduates of our program have felt well prepared for academic psychiatry, private practice psychiatry, or public sector psychiatry. It is the mission of our program to produce excellent clinicians and leaders in all realms of psychiatry who can face the challenges of psychiatry in the contemporary era.
