Internal Medicine-Psychiatry Residency

Program Leadership - Jane Gagliardi, MD, Program Training Director; Nicole Helmke, MD, Associate Program Training DirectorEstablished in the mid-1990’s, the Duke Internal Medicine-Psychiatry (Med-Psych) Residency Program is a combined five-year program offered by the Department of Medicine and Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences. Led by Jane Gagliardi, MD, MHS, the Med-Psych residency is one of the longest standing and best-known in the country. The program prepares physicians for comprehensive and integrated care of adult patients, particularly those with complexity and those with overlapping medical and psychiatric problems. 

Med-Psych residents have the opportunity to work closely with Duke faculty who trained in a combined residency program (Medicine-Psychiatry, Neurology-Psychiatry, Family Medicine-Psychiatry or the Triple Board), as well as faculty from the departments of Medicine and Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences. Learn about our faculty.

Duke’s Med-Psych training program is approved by both the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. Graduates are eligible for board certification in both specialties.

I wanted to work at a center of both clinical and academic excellence with multiple research opportunities in clinical work and basic sciences, and Duke offers all of that and somehow does it in a relaxed way that allows for additional focus on personal goals and growth.
