Beyond the Clinic

In addition to the robust clinical training that UT Health San Antonio psychiatry offers, the program also provides ample opportunities for residents to engage in research, community service, advocacy, leadership and career development. Residents have protected elective time for 3 full months in their second year, one half day each week throughout their third year, and 5 full months in their fourth year during which to pursue such opportunities.

Residents who desire more time and support for clinical research can apply for the Residency Research Track, which provides up to 40% of their total training time for research during PGY2 – PGY4 years, as well as faculty mentorship and training in research methodology.

The psychiatry department, the office of graduate medical education, and the Air Force all offer funding to residents for travel and conference attendance. Each year, several residents present research at national conferences.

Additionally, residents often serve in a variety of leadership roles at the institutional, local, state and national level. Residents have taken part in fundraising for the National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI), participated in mental health advocacy at the Texas State Capitol, and organized outreach programs for refugees. UT Health San Antonio psychiatry residents are actively involved in making a difference in their community and world!
