Lutheran General Hospital’s Psychiatry Residency Program started in 1983. It is a fully accredited four year training program in General Psychiatry. Our mission is to provide quality didactic and clinical training to interested and enthusiastic residents, in order to enable them to become highly competent psychiatrists with an ethical and humane approach to patient care. Our values are the creation of an environment that facilitates optimal learning; stimulates individual development; and considers the educational, professional and personal goals of each trainee.
Our program trains residents in an open, collegial atmosphere where residents and faculty interact closely. While residents are regarded as an integral part of the patient care team, educational experiences are not controlled by service obligations. Our goal is an optimally balanced educational experience.
