Welcome from our Program Director
Welcome to our Psychiatry Residency Program at TriStar Centennial Medical Center!
Our first class of residents began in July 2021! As a new program, we have much to offer and look forward to building our future with you. We are committed to providing you with an excellent and safe clinical learning environment created by our knowledgeable and compassionate faculty.
The TriStar Centennial Medical Center Psychiatry Residency Program’s mission is to develop the next generation of physicians and physician leaders. As a part of HCA Healthcare, we are driven by a single mission: Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.
This program is designed to offer residents a rewarding, educational environment where residents are provided individualized learning opportunities by faculty and staff who support and sustain one another throughout quality care delivery. Our faculty are committed to ensuring the residents' clinical experience and educational needs are fulfilled while expanding residents’ perspectives to be inclusive of cultures, values, and ideals.
Our Psychiatry Residency Training Program at TriStar Centennial Medical Center is a new ACGME-accredited, four-year program designed to train well-rounded, clinically competent physicians that are capable of balancing the demands of medical practice with healthy personal lifestyles.
Psychiatry is a varied field with opportunities to work in multiple types of treatment settings. Psychiatrists may work in a hospital with inpatients or doing consultations. They may work in psychiatric hospitals, jails or prisons, substance use programs, and outpatient facilities such as a private practice or community clinic. They may also find a career in psychiatric research.
Psychiatrists also work alongside physicians in other specialties, nurses, social workers, advanced practice nurses, physician assistants, psychologists, and other therapists in order to serve the population’s psychiatric needs.
Psychiatry encompasses more than you may have realized. Psychiatrists examine, diagnose, and treat the mental and physical aspects of psychological conditions. Some conditions that psychiatrists may commonly see in patients include insomnia, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and bipolar disorder.
No matter how you envision your future career, mental health is an increasingly salient touchstone of medicine, making the role of a psychiatrist all the more critical to helping those who need it.
