This recently accredited program at Indiana University 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.
Using current therapies and treatment modalities, the Vincennes Psychiatry Residency trains 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.
