The curriculum in the Psychiatry Residency Program at Vincennes integrates residents with primary care physicians in state-of-the-art teaching hospitals and clinics throughout southern Indiana. With the program’s unique structure, residents are afforded opportunities in research, scholarship, didactics and educational support at Indiana University School of Medicine.
All residents attend protected half-day didactics and have the opportunity to teach and mentor medical students. Integrated distance learning with the Department of Psychiatry, including Grand Rounds, is provided to ensure residents stay connected with department staff, faculty and residents outside of Vincennes. Residents have full access to the Ruth Lilly Medical Library in Indianapolis and the Stone Family Center for Health Sciences in Evansville. Residents also have the opportunity to participate in bi-monthly journal clubs, research electives and participation in national meetings.
Residents are provided with book and computer allowance, and recorders for psychotherapy supervision. With faculty mentorship, all residents complete a scholarly project during their PGY 3 or PGY 4 year.
