Training the Next Generation of Leaders in Psychiatry


We are a diverse community of learners committed to providing compassionate and comprehensive psychiatric care.

Through involvement in hospital and clinic quality committees, residents engage in scholarly activities that impact the quality and efficiency of healthcare delivery in our local community. Both quality improvement projects and scholarly activity are integral parts of our curriculum and are requirements for graduation from the program.

The Georgia South Psychiatry Residency Program hosts weekly didactic sessions for residents, medical students, staff physicians and other learners. Sessions are held each Thursday beginning at 9:00 am and conclude at 3:00 pm. Didactic sessions include “core” lectures, which cover topics pertinent to the foundation of Psychiatry. Core lectures are repeated annually to allow residents to review core topics and concepts multiple times throughout their four years of residency training. In addition to core lectures, didactic sessions include journal club, case reviews, resident-led lectures, and board review.
