General Psychiatry: Residents
A Message from Chief Residents
Thank you for considering the UT Health San Antonio’s Psychiatry Residency Program.
Here are several reasons to consider our program:
|1.||Variety of sites — three different hospital systems and 12 clinics in an urban setting ensure your exposure to diverse systems and patient populations. There are few psychiatry programs in the nation that have three different hospital systems (community, VA, and active duty military hospitals).|
|2.||Education — the program offers protected time for weekly noon conferences (lunch provided!), grand rounds, and didactics along with access to library resources and an annual stipend for books or academic materials. Travel funds, professional membership reimbursements, and administrative leave are also available to encourage participation in conferences or academic meetings around the state and country. Our large program also provides a buffer, if leave becomes necessary.|
|3.||Electives — three months of elective time as a PGY-2 and significant elective time each year thereafter provides the opportunity to explore career and fellowship options early in residency. The generous amount of elective time allows each resident to tailor residency to personal interests (research, education, community psychiatry, etc.).|
|4.||Lifestyle and Diversity — San Antonio is a large city with a small town feel (7th largest by population in the country), good public schools, affordable housing, short commutes, and lots of parks and events. UT Health San Antonio attracts residents and faculty from across the country and from all walks of life, so you will have no trouble finding social activities and places of interest.|
|5.||Faculty/Staff — supportive and available faculty and staff contribute to your education and will help facilitate any project ideas you have for quality improvement, research, or electives.|
