Meet our Residents

The residents, by far, are one of the greatest strengths of our residency program. The environment is supportive and collegial. Residents also spend time together outside of work enjoying socials, retreats and checking out the fine things to do in the Houston area.

“I chose UTHealth Psychiatry because I felt like a part of the family right away. I was treated warmly by the faculty and residents. Also, Houston has so much to offer — arts, food, a huge medical center area. Who can beat that?”
