Psychiatry Residency Program

Psychiatry is experiencing a time of unparalleled gains in brain research and pharmaceutical innovation. Amidst this, our program also remains committed to helping residents establish a framework for understanding the depth of the mind, thus illuminating "the person" in the patient. Developing experience with the power of talking therapies to facilitate new learning and change is embraced as respectfully as the latest advancements in psychopharmacology and neuroscience."

The NEOMED Psychiatry Residency Program is based primarily in the Akron-associated hospitals of Akron General Medical Center and Summa Health System (Akron City Hospital and St. Thomas Hospital). Curriculum activities also take place at agencies of the County of Summit Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services Board, including Children's Hospital, Community Support Services, Portage Path Psychiatric Emergency Services, Psycho-Diagnostic Clinic and the Portage County Jail.
