Beth Israel Medical Center: Psychiatry Residency and Fellowship Programs

Education: Overview

The psychiatry residency training program is a four-year program, or a three-year program following a transitional internship year, approved by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and accredited by the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education.

The training program is designed to develop psychiatric clinicians who have a broad base of clinical and theoretical knowledge. The department's clinical philosophy blends the most current thinking from the biological, psychodynamic and sociological perspectives. The resident is expected to become proficient in applying these perspectives to the treatment and understanding of his/her patients and to understand current research and developments in the field. Under close supervision, the clinical and academic assignments are designed to gradually help the residents integrate their knowledge and experience. The educational process is enriched by an extensive range of clinical and research activities, didactic seminars, grand rounds, clinical conferences and journal clubs. While providing a rigorous academic and clinical program, the department fosters a warm sense of community. Residents quickly sense the ease with which they can approach staff for advice and support. Their involvement in the department is encouraged and enhanced by weekly resident lunches and resident-organized social events. Residents receive one month of vacation a year.
