Resident Interest Groups

The Yale Department of Psychiatry offers opportunities for residents to supplement their education by joining resident interest groups. These groups meet frequently and allow residents to advance their learning about a specific area of psychiatry. The groups are led and run by residents with assistance from faculty.
