Why I chose IU Psychiatry Residency: IU stood out to me in the application process for its diversity of experiences across PGY-2 and PGY-3. Now as a resident, I have been able to create my PGY-3 schedule to include specialized clinics such as early psychosis (PARC), gender wellness, and perinatal addictions, all of which are perfectly tailored to my interest in adolescent/young adult psychiatry. While I occasionally found this degree of customization to be present in other programs as PGY-4s, nowhere else was it so diverse throughout training.
