From the Director

On behalf of the Ohio State University Department of Psychiatry, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Psychiatry Residency Program. Our goal is to provide each resident with a comprehensive and individualized psychiatric educational experience that stimulates professional growth and integrity. To achieve this goal, we integrate core clinical rotations and a structured didactic curriculum that is dynamic and continuously updated to reflect the advancements in psychiatric knowledge and meet the challenges confronting today’s psychiatric professional.


While the residency program is four years in duration, our central mission entails preparing residents with an enthusiastic foundation for lifelong professional growth. As a result, residents are exposed to the diverse breadth of existing psychiatric knowledge as well as to advancing neurobiological, psychological, and sociocultural theories. The program provides practical experiences in each of the core competency areas of patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, professionalism, and systems-based practice.


Trainees are strongly encouraged to utilize their residency experiences and faculty mentorship to develop individualized, longitudinal professional goals, such as preparation for clinical practice, subspecialty training, academic or administrative careers, or other enrichment opportunities. As faculty, we are interested and available to assist you with your professional endeavors and personal challenges. We are pleased by your decision to enter the psychiatric profession and hope that you will find your residency experience meaningful and rewarding.

Please feel free to contact me through email with further questions about our educational programs.
