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.
