Psychiatry residents talking with each other

Providing top-notch education programs is central to our mission, and we’re passionate about training future leaders in psychiatry and clinical psychology. Our trainees benefit from a well-rounded cadre of faculty members who are committed to their development, numerous clinics and labs in a world-class medical institution, and a community of fellow learners who share their ambition to improve people’s mental health and quality of life.  

We offer a range of programs:

In our education programs as well as our clinical and research operations, we aspire to create a community built on collaboration, innovation, creativity and belonging. Our collective success depends on the robust exchange of ideas in which the rich diversity of our perspectives, backgrounds and experiences flourishes.

We believe that the more diverse voices in our community—from trainees to staff to faculty—the better we’re able to understand our patients, provide the best possible care, ask the most incisive research questions and design the most innovative and effective healthcare delivery systems.

“Education is a cornerstone of Duke Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences. Learners benefit from exposure to patients in diverse settings and supervisors from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds. Duke also offers many opportunities for self-directed learning in conjunction with a strong, balanced foundation in biological neurosciences and psychotherapy.”
