Elective Opportunities

Each year consists of 13 four-week block rotations. Residents have varying schedules based on their training track, with each providing an excellent foundation in general and subspecialty psychiatric care. Starting in the second year of training, all residents are assigned to a combined continuity and Psychotherapy clinic within the BayCare Health System, where they spend a half-day each week.

Note: Our block schedule and didactic curriculum will be released in July.
