  • I chose this program...

    because there was no better program throughout the interview trail for a balance of great training and resident happiness. I felt welcomed and at home from the moment I showed up for the interview dinner. I looked for a program where I felt the most genuine welcoming feeling and happiness from the residents, and USD does not disappoint.

  • What do you get/benefit from by choosing this program over another, similar program?

    Our program has a tremendous work life balance. I truly believe as a group of residents we are closer than most as friends and not just coworkers. We depend on each other and care about each other.

  • What's the best perk of this program?

    Work/life balance

  • What is one thing you want a prospective resident for the Psychiatry program to know?

    We are a close knit community who looks for residents who will fit in well in a multitude of areas, most importantly with the residents, faculty, and staff.
