Welcome to the Department of Psychiatry residency training page at St. Elizabeth's Medical Center. We are committed to the highest standards of clinical care and education. Because psychiatry is a complex, rapidly developing specialty, the program seeks to graduate doctors with the understanding and clinical skills needed for the practice of general psychiatry. The psychiatry residency training is a four year program with a total of 20 residents.
The Psychiatry Residency Program was established as a three-year program in 1970. In 1994 it was accredited as a four year training program.
Several recent graduates have transitioned to Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowships at Tufts Medical Center, Massachusetts General Hospital, Cambridge Health Alliance and other prestigious institutions across the country. Residents have also entered other subspecialty fellowships such as Geriatric Psychiatry and Psychosomatic Medicine. Others have taken positions as attending physicians within the Steward Health Care system and at facilities in the local area and around the country. Some choose to remain in Boston while others practice in underserved communities.
