Categorical Psychiatry Residency

With our wide array of clinical sites, our residents enjoy a diverse offering of training opportunities in General Psychiatry across their four-year curriculum.

Training sites include:

  • University of Cincinnati Medical Center providing adult inpatient, consultation-liaison, psychiatric emergency services, addiction psychiatry, geropsychiatry, and forensic psychiatry;
  • Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (ranked third among Children’s Hospitals nationally) providing child and adolescent psychiatry training;
  • Cincinnati Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center providing adult inpatient/outpatient psychiatric treatment;
  • Central Clinic (Logan Hall) a community mental health center on our medical campus providing outpatient public sector training;
  • UC Student Health and Counseling Centers providing psychopharmacologic management of the undergraduate and graduate student population;
  • Resident Psychotherapy Clinic providing a private practice model for residents to provide adult and adolescent outpatient care. 

Our investment in the department’s teaching mission at both the undergraduate and graduate levels is evident from our high recruitment into psychiatry.

We are among the top 15 universities nationally in our recruitment of students into psychiatry. Our faculty represent a broad range of expertise that allows our residents to learn firsthand from specialists throughout their clinical rotations and didactic curriculum.

After completing our program, residents are well prepared for careers in academia or clinical practice. Often residents continue with us to pursue specialized training in one of our four ACGME accredited fellowships in:

We also welcome the opportunity to hire many of our talented residents as faculty once they have completed their training.

In addition to our internationally recognized research faculty, we have a rich group of psychotherapy supervisors within our department and from our neighboring institutions, the Lindner Center of HOPE and the Cincinnati Psychoanalytic Institute, providing education to residents in cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic and supportive therapies.
