Just a forewarning for anyone considering this psychiatry residency... the program director fired 2 of 4 residents in the second year after starting the program for fishy reasons. During that year, a psychopharm resident was also let go. It is rumored that the PD actually fabricated a great deal of information in the firing of at least one of the psych residents and that the termination was overturned on appeal with that resident ultimately resigning. A lawsuit was threatened upon the overturning of the appeal (a lawsuit against the resident) if that person ever spoke out against the program in any way. I have felt at odds about this kind of information... my residency experience was AMA and not at all a nightmare... but I think incoming residents should know that 50% of the first classes of residents were terminated. Things like this are not a fluke. They are important to know when accepting a 4 year contract and expecting stability within the program. Good luck in your endeavors.
