Psychiatry Residency Program

The Authority Health Psychiatry Residency is a four-year postdoctoral training program based in metropolitan Detroit.

The Authority Health Psychiatry Residency Program is a four-year ACGME accredited postdoctoral training program based in metropolitan Detroit. The goal of the program is to develop superbly trained general psychiatrists who will have a working understanding of the needs and problems of a low-income urban population with severe and chronic psychiatric disorders and multiple medical comorbidities.

Residents train in settings that include community mental health centers, a psychiatric hospital and importantly, in Federally Qualified Health Centers, developing models of integrated care. Residents will become expert in coordinating psychiatric care with family physicians, internists and other health care professionals who provide care for medical conditions. They will understand new developing systems of care that will include both psychiatric and medical care.
