Psychiatry Residency in Merrillville

Psychiatry Residency in Merrillville

The IU School of Medicine Psychiatry Residency program in Merrillville was accredited in September 2020 and expands the opportunity for resident training in Northern Indiana.

Residency training includes a wide variety of quality clinical experiences and educational didactics through Regional Care Group, Indiana’s largest and most comprehensive network of community based healthcare and social services. We provide high quality mental healthcare, primary healthcare and social services for low income, underinsured and uninsured families in Northwest Indiana. Residents will receive training in all areas of psychiatry in the inpatient psychiatric unit that offers a 16-bed safe and structured therapeutic setting for those experiencing acute psychiatric symptoms, outpatient services, four federal qualified health centers and two residential addictions units.

The community mental health setting provides residents with the rare opportunity to follow patients throughout their care and gain expansive knowledge of treatments for lifetime psychiatric illness. Residents have the opportunity to develop fully integrated models of care while increasing access to psychiatric services within underserved communities in Northwest Indiana.

We are excited to welcome our inaugural class of residents in 2022!
