The Psychiatry Residency Program in Vermont is celebrating its 60th year in 2021. We are proud of our history and take pride in our graduates. Our long affiliation with the University of Vermont College of Medicine provides the vital academic grounding for educating our residents, while the sponsorship of UVM Medical Center affords both institutional context and a modern workplace. Our strength lies in our size, which promotes individual attention to each resident's learning and facilitates the building of lifelong professional friendships.
The program accepts five residents per year, two of whom participate in a combined five-year general/child and adolescent psychiatry program. More information about the combined program and the VCCYF can be found at Child Psychiatry and About Us. All five residents function as a single group until the PGY-4 year when the two child track residents begin full-time child psychiatry training.
The natural beauty of our location, the vibrancy of a surprisingly cosmopolitan small city, and the livability of Vermont itself are the reasons so many of us have come here to stay. The program is best described in the words of our residents, so please read on to see what they have to say. If you would like additional information, please contact us.
