Psychiatry Residency Training Program

The Psychiatry Residency Training Program is an integral part of the new Department of Behavioral Health, Psychiatry Adult Specialty Services and is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Residency Review Commission for training up to eight (8) residents each year in categorical general (adult) psychiatry. Program was most recently accredited for five (5) years as of 2012.

The goal of the Psychiatry Residency Training Program is the training of the psychiatry resident with comprehensive didactic and clinical experiences embodying both traditional skills and innovative methods and sufficient exposure to the problems of military psychiatry in a community mental health setting.

  • The training program uses the facilities of Tripler Army Medical Center as well as the Veterans Administration Outpatient/Inpatient Services (physically co-located with TAMC), and other local clinical & educational facilities.
  • It is standard practice to expect a 50+ hour workweek for all trainees (excluding call and didactic/reading responsibilities) and full compliance with ACGME guidance on resident duty hours and working conditions.
  • All residents are required to attend didactic, noon conferences, grand rounds and morning report when on psychiatry rotations.
  • Research opportunities are individually designed for residents.
  • Fellowships are available in child and adolescent psychiatry and addiction psychiatry.
  • In the course of the four-year program, residents gain exposure to all contemporary theories of mental illness and practice in all current treatment methods.
  • Clinical work is varied and supervised.
