A four-year program accredited by the American Council for Graduate Medical Education, our goal is to train general psychiatrists by means of strong clinical experience and a systematic exposure to relevant knowledge from biological, psychological and social sciences. Special effort has been devoted to achieving a well-balanced program integrating theoretical learning and clinical experience. As a university-based program in a large public/private hospital system, UTMB provides a solid core of knowledge and a scientific framework as well as the numbers and variety of patients for a full range of clinical experiences.
