The Orange Park Medical Center (OPMC) GME Psychiatry Program launched in 2017 as an ACGME accredited four-year program with 16 positions. Our program is motivated to create a diverse and culturally sensitive training environment.

Our residency program provides residents with progressive experience across a range of services and settings to prepare them for careers in a variety of practice types as well as fellowship training and board certification.

Residents develop strong skills in patient evaluation, case formulation and differential diagnosis, resulting in personalized treatment planning and management through a lifecycle informed biopsychosocial perspective. Clinical care is guided by compassion and respect with principles of patient safety and quality of care prioritized through a multi-disciplinary and resource-based approach.

Our highly dedicated faculty provide personalized supervision. Many have fellowship or subspecialty training. Residents are taught to perform ECT, TMS, emergency psychopharmacology, and they will also be provided with forensic experience. All residents participate in either a quality improvement project, database analysis or clinical research study, as well as other scholarly activities, including presentations at regional and national meetings, and scientific publications.

Through comprehensive didactics as well as clinical rotations and evaluations, residents master the core competencies. They become advocates for patient care through clinical knowledge and life-long practice-based learning and improvement.

Psychiatry residents work with other ACGME accredited programs at OPMC, including family medicine, internal medicine, cardiology, dermatology, and palliative care. Additional skills in teaching are gained through these relationships as well as through work with third and fourth year medical students and advocacy in the community.

We welcome all candidates to apply to our program through the ERAS application service. Thank you for your interest in the OPMC General Psychiatry Residency Program!
