As a trainee in the Psychiatry Residency at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, you’ll receive exceptional clinical psychiatry training in an academic environment grounded in the three Mayo Clinic shields: clinical practice, research, and education.

Providing effective consultations for all psychiatry patients means that practical psychotherapy is integrated with thoughtful pharmacotherapy, and then applied to a diverse patient population. Mayo Clinic’s Department of Psychiatry and Psychology is one of the largest psychiatric treatment groups in the United States, with more than 80 psychiatrists and psychologists representing every aspect of psychiatric medicine.

The Generose Building, part of Mayo Clinic Hospital, Saint Marys Campus, is a state-of-the-art psychiatric hospital that includes 73 beds divided among a child and adolescent unit, an acute adult unit, a medical psychiatry and geriatric psychiatry unit, and a mood disorders unit. Residential and outpatient addiction programs, a pain rehabilitation center, and an outpatient clinic round out the hospital's clinical services.

Unique program opportunities include:

  • Integrated Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Track for incoming psychiatry residents who have a strong interest in working with children and adolescents
  • Research Track for residents with an interest in clinical research
  • In the Community Psychiatry Track residents join the outpatient community-based practice at Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire, Wisconsin for PGY-3 and up to 6 months in PGY-4 (with chief opportunity)
  • The Psychiatry Clinician-Educator Track is in development and will provide interested residents an opportunity to further their educational aptitudes and individual academic goals
  • Teaching opportunities with Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine students and visiting students from other medical schools
  • Encouragement and support to participate in research projects and presentations
