Eighteen new first-year residents will be welcomed into the Yale Psychiatry Residency Program this year.

The new PGY-1 and Albert J. Solnit Integrated Adult/Child Psychiatry residents matched with the Department of Psychiatry on March 20. 

"We’re delighted to have matched an outstanding group of applicants to our general adult and Solnit residency programs," said Robert M. Rohrbaugh, MD, Professor of Psychiatry and Residency Program Director. "The group includes individuals interested in biological, psychological, and social justice approaches to our field, and includes several members with specific interests in the arts and humanities in medicine.

"The group is diverse, with over half of the group affiliating as women and over one quarter affiliating as members of an underrepresented in medicine racial or ethnic group. And we are pleased that five of the incoming class members know us very well, having been medical students at Yale.  We are looking forward to beginning to work with the class when they arrive for orientation in June."

The Yale Psychiatry Residency Program offers numerous on-the-job training experiences, mentorship, and individualized education plans.
