Texas A&M Psychiatry Residency Program Overview

The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences is housed in the School of Medicine within Texas A&M University’s Health Science Center. It was originally part of Family Medicine but then emerged as its own department. In August 2018 the Department was formally established. It is one of eight departments and currently the fastest growing department in the School of Medicine providing education, research, Telebehavioral health care and clinical experience for medical, graduate and professional students and postdoctoral fellows.

The Psychiatry Residency Program is accredited by ACGME and is the newest residency program at Texas A&M University.
