Overview of Psychiatry Training in the DPHB


The DPHB educational structure provides Brown medical students with educational opportunities in Psychiatry, three residencies, two fellowships, a psychology internship program, and seven postdoctoral training programs. The Child Psychiatry training programs include one of the six original Triple Board programs. The DPHB also administers seven NIH-sponsored Research Fellowship programs. Together, the two programs provide a fertile ground for future research leaders in our department and other departments in the country. The General Psychiatry Residency attracts a talented cadre of medical students in a highly competitive market. The General Psychiatry Residency also serves as an essential element of the Triple Board Residency, as well as the Geriatric Psychiatry Residency, and the combined Neurology-Psychiatry Residency. These programs continue to flourish, in large part due to the unwavering support, excellent resources and opportunities available through the DPHB’s network of affiliated hospitals.
