Education and Training Programs

The UCSD Department of Psychiatry is home to between 25-30 formal training programs, and about 350 trainees. Our programs serve different disciplines, including Psychiatry, Psychology and Allied Mental Health Professions, and different levels of training, from predoctoral medical and graduate students to postdoctoral Residents and research Fellows. Topics range from general to highly specialized and cover developmental phases from childhood to late life. Several of our programs are supported by the NIH via R25 and T32 Awards, and by the Veterans Administration via MIRECC and other Fellowship support.
