The UAB Department of Psychiatry offers a four-year residency program in general psychiatry designed for the new medical school graduate. Residents will complete rotations on a variety of psychiatric rotations, including adult inpatient emergency psychiatry, consult psychiatry, outpatient psychotherapy and psychiatry, VA psychiatry, and child and adolescent psychiatry. The didactic curriculum is balanced with the goal of training residents who have solid diagnostic and therapeutic skills. Our department also has a strong research base and provides an opportunity for early mentorship in research. Scholarly activity during training is an expectation of the program.
