The mission of the Duke University Psychiatry Residency Education Program is to promote the development of post-graduate psychiatrists who will be exceptional communicators, skillful psychotherapists, highly competent practitioners, and effective leaders. Our graduates will be virtuous physicians who value lifelong learning, adhere to the highest ethical standards of the profession, and serve the community as role models.
INTERESTED IN BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN BASIC AND CLINICAL NEUROSCIENCES? Check out this opportunity with PARTNeR: Postdocs And Residents Translating Neuroscience Research
PARTNeR is a group of postdocs and psychiatry residents who recognize the importance of bridging the gap between basic neuroscience research and the clinic. As basic science researchers often have little or no interaction with patients and psychiatry residents often have little or no interaction with the research world, we provide a forum for postdocs and residents to interact with and learn from one another. We meet the 4th Tuesday of every month in Bryan Research Building Room 301.
