Psychiatry Graduate Medical Education

The Department of Psychiatry at Indiana University School of Medicine offers three accredited residency programs for individuals who have completed undergraduate medical education: a Categorical Psychiatry Residency program based in Indianapolis, a Categorical Psychiatry Residency program in Vincennes and a Triple Board Residency for those interested in training in Pediatrics, Psychiatry, and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry in one program.

By introducing the basics in diagnosis and pharmacological treatments in the first year of training followed by the subspecialties of psychiatry in the second year, residents have the opportunity to apply their techniques to patient care. The latter half of the program integrates medical and scientific literature with outstanding interview techniques and excellent therapeutic skills. The last year of the program allows residents to follow their own tracks and interests.

Residency Programs


The Psychiatry Residency Program introduces the basics in diagnosis and pharmacological treatments while providing hands-on training in an array of psychiatric subspecialties. Categorical residents can tailor their training by following one of three tracks: research, education or global health.

Triple Board

Medical graduates interested in working with children and teens can learn to treat the child as a whole through a unique Triple Board Residency Program. Residents train in the fields of general, child and adolescent, and pediatric psychiatry to master the diagnoses and treatment of complex psychiatric cases.


A newly accredited program, the Psychiatry Residency at Vincennes provides residents with an in-depth approach to clinical psychiatric diagnosis and treatment in collaborative teaching environments.
