Training and Education Programs

General Psychiatry Residency Program
The Residency Training Program at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences is fully accredited by the ACGME for a total of 22 resident positions. We have a rich and proud tradition with over 50 years of continuous existence. Our basic philosophy is to cultivate fully-capable psychiatrists trained in all aspects of modern psychiatric practice. 

Child-Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship
The Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship of the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center is a two-year fully accredited program it is usually entered after the third or fourth year of psychiatry residency, although under special circumstances, training can begin after the PG II year. Only two fellows are selected each year to ensure a friendly and closely supervised milieu.

Undergraduate Medical Education
Students learn about human behavior and psychiatry throughout the four years of medical school with coursework, clerkship, and electives. This education helps future physicians understand the interplay of emotional, cognitive, biological, and psychosocial factors in their patients' health and illness. A psychiatry interest group, PsychOU, offers social and educational enrichment to students interested in psychiatry.
