Training and Education

The mission of the Oklahoma State University Psychiatry Residency is to foster clinical excellence, leadership, and scholarship. Graduates of the program work in every clinical practice setting, and lead clinical and research teams nationwide.

We approach the training mission systematically by combining closely-supervised intensive clinical experiences in multiple settings with a comprehensive didactic program. Experiences are aligned with the health care reform demands of the contemporary era in giving residents clinical responsibilities within an integrated continuum of progressive complexity on the wards and in the clinics. Mentorship and elective experiences beginning in the PGY1 year and continuing throughout training provide residents with the opportunity to explore specific areas for professional development and master a topic area more deeply.

Our ultimate goals are to open the field of psychiatry to our residents and to help them become both broadminded and critical thinkers.
