Clinical Training Sites and Services


Welcome to Chicago!



We hope that if you just visit or decide to stay, you will enjoy Chicago as much as we do here at UIC. We have diverse training sites for residents that cover the range from community psychiatry to the state mental health system to the tertiary care center at the university.

The Neuropsychiatric Institute houses the UIC Psychiatry Outpatient Clinics, which include residents' clinical offices and seminar rooms. Originally, when it opened in 1941, the institute was directed as a joint venture between the Departments of Neurology and Psychiatry at the 100-year-old College of Medicine, with neurology patients, offices, and labs located in the north tower, and psychiatry patients, offices, and labs in the south tower. The Institute has achieved a national reputation for its excellence in academic psychiatry. One of Illinois's first psychiatric residency programs was created here in 1946. From that time we have educated and trained leaders in psychiatry throughout Illinois as well as the nation. The clinical programs of
Mood and Anxiety Disorders, Psychotic Disorders, Neuropsychiatry/Behavioral Neurology, and Women’s Mental Health are located in this building.
