Director's Welcome

Chicago Chair fmp


Welcome to the Family Medicine and Psychiatry Program! We hope that our website may help you decide if combining family medicine and psychiatry is a good fit for you.

If you think that you might be interested in pursuing this career and want to know more specifically about our program, you could arrange for an informal visit, or more formally do an elective with us in Primary Care Psychiatry. I hope that everything on our website answers most of your questions.

I want you to feel comfortable contacting me or any of our residents to talk about your career interests, whether you plan to apply here or not.

We are very excited that you have an interest in combined training and would like to assist you in any way possible to explore your options.

We all look forward to meeting you!
