Welcome from the Program Directors

Dear Prospective Residents:

We are delighted to invite you to explore our UCLA/VA Greater Los Angeles Psychiatry Residency Training Program!

Situated on almost 400 acres of land on the west side of Los Angeles, we work with some of the most vulnerable citizens of the community while surrounded by some of the wealthiest parts of Southern  California.  We offer resources and help for those who have served our country, who are now suffering with substance dependence, recovering from PTSD, or dealing with serious mental illness and homelessness.

With UCLA only a mile away, we have world-class UCLA faculty supervising, teaching and doing research with our residents. Residents have opportunities to work in the community with health services researchers, do quality improvement in clinical settings, and learn interventions like Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. Residents learn to diagnose and treat psychiatric disorders in the context of specialty clinics using evidence-based psychotherapy and family interventions as well as medication.   The focus on whole patient care is experienced in our inter-professional teams, and in our beautiful Integrative Health program, featuring yoga, acupuncture and mindfulness stress reduction training. 

Residents also spend part of their time each year at the UCLA Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital, learning how to care for children and adults from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds. 

We are a friendly, mid-sized program with enormous options. We look forward to meeting you and showing you what we have to offer!


Warmly,
