Psychiatry Residency in Vincennes

This recently accredited program at IU School of Medicine expands the opportunity for resident training across hospitals in southern Indiana. Part of Indiana University’s Southwest Indiana Consortium, the Psychiatry Residency at Vincennes enables collaboration among multiple teaching hospitals and residents, and provides a comprehensive broad-based education in clinical psychiatric diagnosis and treatment in a community setting.

Expanding Knowledge

Using current therapies and treatment modalities, the Psychiatry Residency at Vincennes is organized to train residents as they provide care to patients with a wide range of psychiatric diagnoses. The community mental health center provides wrap around services that joins with resident training, providing a rare opportunity to follow patients throughout their care and expand knowledge of treatments for lifetime psychiatric illness. In this program, residents develop fully integrated models of care as they work alongside inter-professional students, primary care and specialty physicians with a goal to increase access to psychiatric services within underserved communities.

Collaborative Care Education

Residents will participate with primary care in both a family medicine and internal medicine residency clinic. Through the Psychiatry Residency at Vincennes program, residents experience collaborative care that is increasingly in demand with the help of integrated training. The program’s curriculum allows residents to gain expertise through the outpatient consultation liaison psychiatry, neurology, child and adolescent psychiatry, emergency room training and additional electives.
