Program Overview

The General Psychiatry Residency program is structured to provide residents with the knowledge and expertise to deliver superior psychiatric care to their patients. These goals are accomplished through a four-year broad-based curriculum, which includes such areas as neuropsychiatry, psychopathology, pharmacology and various psychotherapeutic approaches to their patient. In addition, our program includes education in geriatrics, ECT, telepsychiatry, forensic and addiction psychiatry with the opportunity of various electives in the fourth year of training.

The program gives our residents a sense of fellowship while providing comprehensive didactic and clinical training.

The majority of our graduates pursue postgraduate fellowships. Upon completion of all training, our residents easily pursue either clinical practice or academic/research oriented careers.

Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School is located in thriving central New Jersey, a short drive or train ride from both New York City and Philadelphia. Our immediate area offers an active and diverse academic, cultural, ethnic, entertainment and recreational lifestyle. New Jersey is also the perfect place to raise young families.
