Welcome to the Drexel General Psychiatry Residency Program website!
Education is our mission at Drexel.
Our website is maintained and updated by residents who are invested in our program and will be available to answer your questions about Philadelphia and the opportunities we provide our trainees. Our residents are a diverse, talented cohort who are passionate about psychiatry, psychotherapy and advocacy. "Meet" our residents.
The Drexel tradition emphasizes the importance of creating a nurturing, cohesive, friendly and collegial learning environment, and an unwavering commitment to education. Our program provides a variety of clinical experiences to ensure that our trainees are exposed to a wealth of different types of patients and clinical approaches. We are located in one of the most diverse, vibrant and affordable cities in the country. Our didactic curriculum and supervisory experiences emphasize a thorough and well-rounded approach to psychiatry with a substantial devotion to psychotherapy as a critical part of the skill-set of every psychiatrist.
Our residents, faculty and department leadership create a culture of continual evaluation and improvement of our program. Our faculty provide national leadership in education and psychotherapy training. Our trainees are successful in publications and presentations both locally and nationally. Our residents’ commitment to community service and cultural diversity is contagious and palpable. The Philadelphia LGBTQI Health Care Symposium occurs as a resident-driven event at Drexel. We pay close attention to residents’ wellness and resilience. The Resident Wellness Committee, annual resident retreat, process groups, Movie Club, social gatherings/events, holiday parties, Wellness and Patient Safety/Quality Improvement Symposium, and program director open-door policy are examples of how we care for the future of you – our professional colleagues.
We are delighted that you are considering training at Drexel University College of Medicine and thank you for reviewing our program website. We are looking forward to meeting you in person. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions regarding our program.
Best wishes and good luck,
Mark Famador, MD
