The most important indicator of the success of a training program is found in the outcomes of the graduates upon completion of their training. The Psychiatry Residency has been fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
In the past five years, nearly 75% of our graduates went on to fellowships and the remainder entered clinical practices; including academic and private practice settings. Our goal is to give our residents a solid foundation from which they may choose to step into any of the three arenas represented by the Mayo Clinic logo: academics, research, and clinical practice.

Words from past alumni
Two alumni reflect on their experience in the Psychiatry Residency at Mayo Clinic.
I’ve really enjoyed the seminars in the Psychiatry Residency. We had structured didactics to learn about psychotherapy and pharmacology, but then we also had special time set aside to discuss what it means to be a doctor and a psychiatrist. We touched on everything from neuroscience to philosophy in these discussions, and they really helped me come to terms with all of the 'grey' in our field.
Keith Miller, M.D. 2020 graduate
I started residency having clinical experience in the U.K. and Australia. In addition to building on my clinical abilities, I was able to pursue research projects in an area of interest I had identified while working on the child and adolescent inpatient unit. The program supports academic development and, combined with invested mentors, really expanded my research knowledge and enabled me to publish and present around the world.
Reem Shafi, M.B.B.S. 2019 graduate
In recent years, more than 75 percent of our graduates have chosen to continue their medical education through fellowship training. The remainder entered clinical practices, including academic and private practice settings.
