Banner Good Samaritan Psychiatry Residency  

Psychiatry Residency Program Clinical Experiences


As Banner Health Arizona's central referral facility and the largest teaching hospital in the state, Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center provides state-of-the-art diagnostic capabilities and treatment resources for patients throughout the Southwest.

Over the four years of training, our Psychiatry residents are exposed to patients with diverse economic and sociocultural backgrounds and every type of illness, level of acuity and age.

The core clinical rotations at Banner Good Sam include traditional inpatient, outpatient and consultation settings. Those experiences are broadened by other required and elective rotations including emergency psychiatry, child and adolescent psychiatry, substance abuse, geriatrics, community psychiatry, forensics, individual, group and family psychotherapies.

Although the majority of training occurs at Banner Good Sam, several required and elective experiences are at nearby clinical sites. Under experienced faculty supervision, our residents also work with patients at the nearby Veteran's Administration Medical Center (VAMC), Phoenix Children's Hospital (PCH), a community mental health clinic, Arizona State University and other clinical sites.
