The Tulane Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, founded in 1949, is dedicated to teaching, clinical service, and research. Educational experiences designed to teach the next generation of clinicians are provided through integrated medical student training and multiple residencies that include general psychiatry, combined psychiatry and internal medicine, forensic, child and adolescent, and triple board programs. We also provide postdoctoral fellowships, psychology internships, and annual continuing medical education programs. Led by John Thompson, MD, Chair of the department, our more than 50 full-time, multidisciplinary faculty have a wide range of expertise and are continually pioneering innovative clinical programs. Research from our faculty has been transforming our understanding and treatment of emotional and behavioral problems across the lifespan.
