Psychiatry Residency

Training Program


Dr. Alexis A. Giese, Program Director and Vice-Chair, Department of Psychiatry
Residents entering psychiatry training now join an exciting, rapidly evolving field.  Our training programs build on the historical traditions in clinical sciences and core competencies, while at the same incorporating the evolving developments in molecular, neuronal, and genetic aspects of brain function. The faculty of the Department of Psychiatry are dedicated to training you, bringing the latest scientific evidence, clinical models, and technology to understand and treat mental illnesses.  Our department and its training programs build on a deep tradition in psychotherapy, cultural awareness, and community engagement that have always been part of psychiatry’s foundation.  Faculty who lead nationally known programs in substance abuse, neuropsychiatry, neuro-imaging, molecular genetics, psychopharmacology, Native American mental health, infant and early childhood development, forensics, tele-psychiatry, psychoanalysis, and mood disorders are integrated into residents’ clinical rotations and scholarly experiences.  Working together, residents and faculty are partners in lifelong-learning and delivering the best patient care. 
Our unique program offers diverse clinical experiences at University of Colorado HospitalDenver Health Medical Center, the Denver Veterans Administration Medical CenterChildren’s Hospital Colorado, and other training settings throughout our community.  Intensive teaching in clinical settings is complemented by formal conferences, individual supervision, and research and scholarly activities, offering residents full access to the faculty's expertise and mentorship.
I invite you to explore our site and learn more about our programs.
