A primary goal of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurobiology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Medicine is excellence in the training of psychiatric residents and fellows. Our efforts focus on ensuring each resident will practice competent, state-of-the-art, modern psychiatry after graduation.
Psychiatry residents will have the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to ensure competence in the six Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education General Competencies: Patient Care, Medical Knowledge, Interpersonal and Communication Skills, Practice-Based Learning, Professionalism, and Systems-Based Care. Additionally, prior to completion of the residency, psychiatry residents will be competent in five psychotherapies: Psychodynamic, Cognitive-Behavioral, Supportive, Brief Therapy, and Combined Therapy.
