Residency Training Programs

University of Califoria Davis

The centerpiece of our residency training programs is the personal interaction between residents and faculty in the clinical arena.  Our faculty are committed to this educational process and bring the necessary depth and diversity to teaching and supervision in all major theoretical paradigms within our specialty.  Abundant opportunities are provided for residents to maximize their professional development through research, reading, reflection, and scholarship.  Our residents seek out and work closely with motivated faculty members who share their academic and subspecialty interests.  Our educational goal is to train psychiatrists who are equipped to provide the highest quality of patient care both now and in the future.  Residents receive a firm grounding in psychodynamic principles applicable to their patients, as well as biological determinants of behavior and methods of treatment. For example, in 2012, our program ranked first among 64 psychiatry residency training programs whose PGY-3 and PGY-4 residents took the Columbia University Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Competency Test.
