Residency Program Overview
The University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita offers a fully accredited ACGME four-year General Psychiatry Residency Program.
Our residency program is dedicated to training well-rounded psychiatrists to meet the rigorous practice demands of tomorrow. The benefit of being a resident in a relatively small- to medium-sized department is that renowned faculty are easily accessible to residents and are involved with teaching and supervision on a regular basis. Faculty in our program are involved on the national level with various committees and task forces of the American Psychiatric Association and American Society of Clinical Psychopharmacology. In addition, we have faculty working on clinical trials funded by NIMH, private foundations and pharmaceutical companies. One of our faculty, Sheldon Preskorn, M.D., has published more than 500 articles, is considered one of the world's foremost experts on psychopharmacology, and has been a principle investigator studying the majority of psychotropic medications currently marketed in the United States.
Most importantly, we produce graduates that are highly sought after. Our graduates hold leadership positions in community mental health centers and hospitals around the country, are working in faculty positions at universities nationwide, and work in well-established private practices of a variety of sizes.
If you choose to train with us for the next four years, you will find a welcoming group of faculty and residents, a wonderful and affordable place to live that offers the same amenities as a larger city at half the price, and will have the privilege of being one of our highly sought after alumni.
