The Massachusetts General Hospital – McLean Hospital Adult Residency Training Program in Psychiatry emphasizes fundamental medical knowledge based on advances in clinical science and the growing contributions of basic and applied neurosciences. The core of each resident’s education is extraordinarily rich clinical experience through all the years of training.

As a resident, you will diagnose and treat a broad range of patients along a continuum of care, and within a variety of treatment settings and learn the various roles of the modern psychiatrist – primary clinician, consultant, team-leader, and therapist – with direct and skilled supervision. Clinical work and intensive supervision are complemented by a comprehensive curriculum of didactic seminars, rounds, and case conferences.  

Our program encourages elective opportunities throughout all years of training and offers an unusually broad range of opportunities by the PGY-4 year, when all residents design their own individualized curriculum.
