The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley School of Medicine has started a residency program in psychiatry and plans to start a child/ adolescent psychiatry fellowship soon. The department also is creating and implementing an APA-accredited psychology internship program. These programs are conceptualized as being natural extensions of the medical school experience with the goals of providing both general and specialized didactic and clinical experiences to produce well rounded, skilled psychiatrists and child/adolescent psychiatrists who can work with a range of problems and types of populations in diverse settings. The mission of these programs is to graduate skilled, compassionate, versatile physicians who are knowledgeable about systems of care, diverse ethnic and cultural populations, and collaborative care in addition to being knowledgeable and competent in the general clinical practice of psychiatry and child/adolescent psychiatry.

Experiential activities will be supported by an interconnected didactic and clinical curriculum that emphasizes self-initiated learning, problem solving skills, and appropriate use of technology. Faculty will be actively involved in teaching residents in a variety of forums with the expectation that faculty and trainees will work closely together. Faculty and residents will also work with medical students and trainees from other specialties. The medical school is in its second year.

 

Faculty joining these residency programs will have the opportunity to develop and start educational, clinical and research programs within a system that prioritizes working within the community, incorporating prevention and early intervention into care, and collaboration within and outside of medicine. While the primary focus of these positions will be the development of clinical and educational programs, teaching and supervising trainees and the provision of direct clinical care, applicants with current or prior research experience and interest are also encouraged to apply. Protected time for scholarly activities and/or start-up research support can be provided based on interest, prior experience, and future career goals.

 

Academic rank, competitive compensation, and appointment will be commensurate with qualifications.
