Program Highlights

A few highlights of our program include:

  • Regularly scheduled mandatory med-psych conferences that the med-psych residents are excused from their work duties from all hospitals to attend
  • Research opportunities in medicine, psychiatry and combined
  • Regular social events for the med-psych residents
  • Med-Psych blackboard educational page
  • International electives available

Additional highlights we feel are specific to our program include:

  • Five dually trained physicians on faculty as of 2012
  • Training in multiple hospitals broadening the learning experience
  • Two combined medicine-psychiatry clinics at Grady providing centrally located integrated care our residents work in with combined trained faculty
  • Abbreviated internal medicine intern year status
  • The med-psych residents’ schedules are individually created with their input with the residency director to help focus on their career interests
  • Medicine clinic 4th and 5th year is optional opening up that time for residents’ individual career interests
  • Unwavering, strong program support from both departments
  • Excellent psychotherapy training
