Leaders in Psychiatry: Training Pioneers in Clinical Care, Research, Education and Public Policy
Welcome to the UCSF Adult Psychiatry Residency Training Program website! We hope you find all the information you need on this site, but if you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at [email protected].
Our residency program offers a four-year training opportunity across three main training sites in San Francisco: Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center, the San Francisco Veterans Administration Medical Center (SFVAMC Mental Health Services), and Langley Porter Psychiatric Hospital and Clinics (LPPHC) on the UCSF Parnassus campus. In addition to these three sites, residents also do rotations within the UCSF Medical Center on the UCSF Parnassus campus, right next door to LPPHC.
Our training includes the biological, psychological and socio-cultural aspects of psychiatry and strives to prepare residents for successful careers emphasizing clinical practice, scholarship, teaching and research. Information about the UCSF School of Medicine is here, and information about Graduate Medical Education at UCSF is here.
The UCSF Adult Psychiatry Residency Training Program exists in the context of an ethnically and culturally diverse thriving urban setting in one of the premiere academic university medical centers in the world.
As such, its mission shall be:
- To create leaders in the field of psychiatry – in academics and research, in clinical expertise, and in public policy
- To foster the development of psychiatrists who practice critical thinking and an evidence-based approach in all aspects of their work
- To maintain scientific excellence and clinical relevance in the didactic program and in the clinical training experiences of residents
- To promote the professional development, mentoring and well-being of residents and faculty
