Welcome to the Residency Training Program

Residency program word cloud

Dear Future Colleague,

Even though you are applying for residency training, once you enter the Psychiatry Department at Penn Medicine, you will indeed be our colleague.  When I applied to the Hospital of University of Pennsylvania many years ago, I sought an academically excellent School of Medicine, but equally important to me was a warm, engaging environment to care for a diverse patient population and to support my growth as a person and as a physician. In this department, I found the highest caliber of training set in an engaged, supportive community of clinicians and scientists.  During the annual retreat, residents identified characteristics of this program which are displayed above in the word cloud.  I am delighted to see that these positive, inclusive attributes continue to flourish in Penn Psychiatry Residency.

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and the university hospital sit amid a total of 12 professional and graduate schools, along with the premiere undergraduate school. This is a vibrant community, ripe for collaboration and there is no greater reason to choose Penn Psychiatry Residency Program than the cohesion among our residents, faculty and other healthcare team members. We have robust mentoring whether you are interested in research, or clinical fellowship programs in addiction, child and adolescent, community psychiatry, forensics, geriatrics, and consultation-liaison. Our faculty is world class and eager for you to join in your mutual areas of interest.

At Penn you will obtain an education that encompasses core psychotherapy training and the neurobiological underpinnings of psychiatric disorders. We are proud to have created a curriculum that values resident wellness, having fun while you learn, and bringing empathy, intellectual curiosity, and devotion to patient care. We strive to make sure you have time for yourself, your family, and for interacting with your fellow residents. Trainees from this program have abundant possibilities for advancement: expert clinicians, cutting edge researchers, outstanding educators, and prominent administrators. After training at Penn Psychiatry, you will be prepared to take the next step in your career as a lifelong learner, leader, and a member of the Penn family. We look forward to taking this journey with you!

All the best,



E. Cabrina Campbell, M.D.
