Teaching Sites


The training institutions affiliated with the UCSF Fresno Psychiatry Residency Program represent a broad range of health care facilities operated by county, state, and federal governments and nonprofit corporations. Services provided in these facilities include acute inpatient, outpatient, and day treatment programs for adult and geriatric patients; specialized treatment of children and adolescents; consultation-liaison psychiatry in both inpatient and outpatient settings; forensic psychiatry; and emergency psychiatry in a general hospital with one of the busiest emergency rooms in California.

Staff and faculty in these affiliated facilities, along with psychiatrists in private practice who supervise residents’ psychotherapy, meet regularly to evaluate and plan for the ongoing operation of the program. The focus of the program is to provide each resident with experience in the evaluation and treatment of the broadest possible range of patients and psychiatric problems.
