Thank you for your interest in our Combined Internal Medicine & Psychiatry residency training program. You may already know that the program is a five year residency leading to board eligibility in both disciplines. The five years are roughly split half and half between the two specialties. Upon graduation, our resident alumni have chosen a wide variety of jobs including those that involved mostly medicine skills, mostly psychiatric skills, or a combination. Several graduates have elected to continue training in medicine or psychiatric fellowship programs.
At Tulane, we are fortunate to enjoy mutual support for the program from both the Department of Medicine and from the Department of Psychiatry and Neurology. We believe this is important for a combined residency to thrive. We also believe that there must be regular opportunity to integrate the two fields, rather than have just a collection of blocks on each specialty.
