Psychiatry

Program Progression

The Triple Board Residency Program follows a five-year progression that includes training through both academic and clinical settings in all three disciplines.

Psychiatry

The Triple Board resident spends 18 months training in all aspects of categorical Psychiatry, including inpatient and outpatient Psychiatry, adult Neurology, Psychotherapy, Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry, Substance Abuse treatment, Emergency Psychiatry, and community mental health—all while collaborating with other mental health providers. These rotations take place at IU Health Methodist Hospital, IU Health University Hospital, Eskenazi Health Hospital, Riley Hospital for Children and the Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center. All rotation facilities are within walking distance of the IU School of Medicine’s downtown Indianapolis campus.

Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

Residents within the Triple Board Program spend 18 months training in all aspects of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Rotations include inpatient and outpatient Psychiatry, psychotherapy, pediatric Neurology, and long-term psychodynamic psychotherapy. These rotations take place at Eskenazi Health Hospital and Riley Hospital for Children. Throughout the child and adolescent phase of training, residents attend continuity clinics starting in the spring of the PGY4 year. Electives are also offered in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and include school consults, forensics and substance abuse.

Pediatrics

Residents spend a total of 24 months training in Pediatrics. Rotations include general Pediatrics, neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), Pediatric intensive care unit (PICU), Pediatric emergency medicine, Adolescent Medicine and Pediatric Neurology. These rotations take place at IU Health Methodist Hospital, Eskenazi Health, and Riley Hospital for Children. Residents have the opportunity to select four subspecialty months that best align with their clinical interests. A weekly continuity clinic rotation is mandatory for PGY1 residents with the option of every other week beginning in the PGY5 year.
