Program Highlights

The Discipline of Psychiatry at Memorial University offers a broad and solid foundation in general psychiatry. We strive to train residents with excellent clinical skills for patients across a lifespan, in a curriculum that promotes continuing professional development, social accountability and wellness. We are large enough as a program to offer a diverse range of clinical experiences but small enough to allow for easy communication and collaboration amongst faculty and residents. PGY 1 residents in our program are engaged with their “home” program from the commencement of residency. Our academic curriculum has been tailored to meet the requirements of Competence by Design and our transition has been guided by a dedicated faculty and our Discipline Chair, who is also the Chair of the Specialty Committee for Psychiatry at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. For residents who have an interest in pursuing other roles, there are longitudinal experiences in research, medical education, and administrative psychiatry, which are facilitated and mentored.
