Distinction Tracks

The Yale Department of Psychiatry offers residents the opportunity to train in four Distinction Tracks: Global Mental Health, Leadership in Psychiatric Care Delivery, Neuroscience Research Training Program, and Public Psychiatry. Explore their web pages to learn more about each program.

The Yale Psychotherapy Distinction Track (PDT) offers advanced psychotherapy education and clinical training to residents who are highly motivated to learn and practice psychotherapy as a major part of their careers. Co-created by residents and faculty, the PDT weaves together the residency’s core psychotherapy-related curriculum and training while supporting supplementary didactic, clinical, and mentorship opportunities tailored to the goals and interests of PDT-affiliated residents.
