This residency is a critical period in the development of a psychiatrist, from learning new skills to enhancing the resident’s knowledge to the development of one’s own identity as a psychiatric specialist. The residency sets the stage for an ongoing process of continuing education, growth and maturation, rooted in both scientific medicine and the humanistic traditions.
The Psychiatry residency program provides in-depth training in the many varied aspects of psychiatry including psychotherapy, in-patient and out-patient care and severe and persistent mental illness training.
Psychodynamic psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) are areas of particular expertise.
As well, all residents have a longitudinal Family Therapy supervision during their PGY2 year.
Residents are encouraged to participate in critical literature reviews, formal case review and discussion, program development and analysis, quality assurance and improvement as well as more formal and traditional scientific endeavours.
Each fall, the department sponsors a Resident Research Day at which time residents may present their research in the form of an oral presentation. This all day event is capped by an evening award dinner hosted by the department. Distinguished visiting professors are invited to facilitate a learned dialogue.
The Visiting Professor Program brings in approximately twenty distinguished visiting faculty each academic year. In addition to presenting at grand rounds, the visiting professors meet with the residents informally and present workshops, primarily attended by the residents. Local faculty provide many additional grand rounds presentations, both from within the Department of Psychiatry and from other University departments. The department financially supports resident travel to one scientific meeting per year during available protected time.
Complete residency details, including program curriculum, application requirements and selection criteria can be found on the Canadian Resident Matching Service website.
