Psychotherapy Track

The University of Psychiatry Residency Program offers comprehensive, longitudinal training in various psychotherapy modalities. Our psychotherapy curriculum is among the most robust in the region.

Residents in the PGY-3 and 4 years can choose to focus on additional psychotherapy training through the psychotherapy track. Residents in the psychotherapy track can train and receive mentorship in multiple forms of therapy including group and family therapy. They also receive additional training in CBT, DBT, and psychodynamic therapy. Additional mentorship and fellowship opportunities are available through the Chicago Psychoanalytic Institute.

PGY-3
Psychotherapy track residents have 3 hours of dynamic psychotherapy, 3 hours of cognitive behavioral therapy and 2 hours of child therapy each week. They receive 3 hours of supervision weekly ( 1 hour in each modality). In PGY-3 year, all residents attend didactic lectures on cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and family therapy.

PGY-4
Psychotherapy track residents also complete at least 3 hours of therapy in any modality during their PGY-4 year as well as supervision. PGY-4 residents also have elective time to train in additional therapy modalities, to become a therapy supervisor, and gain additional therapy experience through several intensive outpatient programs.
