Resident Program

Welcome to the Psychiatry Residency Training Program of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Oklahoma Schusterman Center in Tulsa! We are an ACGME fully-accredited training program in General Psychiatry, committed to training outstanding physicians skilled in the diagnosis and management of psychiatric disorders. Our program offers a training experience that effectively balances excellent training in psychopharmacology and psychotherapy and produces graduates well-prepared for board certification with the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. We are dedicated to maintaining and enhancing the well-being of our trainees and have developed a robust Wellness Initiative that includes resident leadership.

Within our community-based program, our residents rotate at the major hospitals in Tulsa and receive training and supervision from university and volunteer faculty. This combination provides residents with exposure to a wide range of psychiatric conditions and patient populations. We have a strong didactic core curriculum emphasizing neurology, psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, geriatric, and child psychiatry among other topics. Additionally, our residents participate in required scholarly projects with opportunities to participate in clinical research, to present at regional and national academic meetings, and to publish original research in peer-reviewed manuscripts.

Tulsa is a very friendly city with excellent restaurants, shopping and cultural activities and the family environment of our department makes it an enjoyable place to work and learn. Please call (918) 660-3518 or e-mail me at if you would like to learn more about our program.
