We welcome your interest in residency at the UAMS Department of Psychiatry. Our goal is to produce educated, well-trained, and professional physicians. We believe in constructing a solid clinical base foundation on which residents can build to reach their highest potential, not only as clinicians, but also as academicians, researchers, and administrators.

Our residency is an ACGME-approved, four-year program that accepts up to eight residents per year. In addition we offer fellowships in Child and Adolescent, Forensics, Addictions and Geriatrics.

We have an excellent clinical faculty, many of whom have long been favorites among medical students. We recruit medical students into psychiatry at a rate much higher than the national average. There is an emphasis on teaching in our residency and a mutual respect between residents and faculty.

The Psychiatric Research Institute opened in 2008 and is considered our home base. This is a six-story, 100,000-square foot space which houses clinical, administrative, research, and educational activities. It allows the Department of Psychiatry to come together as a unit and function in a strong, collaborative manner.

Thanks for your interest. Please do not hesitate to contact us personally anytime.
