Director's Statement

Prabhakar Deepak

Thanks for your interest in our Psychiatry Residency Training Program.

Henry Ford Health System is recognized for its commitment to providing quality evidenced-based care. The Health System has been recognized with the Malcolm Baldridge National Quality Award. This award recognizes the culture of performance excellence at Henry Ford.

Henry Ford is home to 90 residency and fellowship programs. Our patients represent a wide breadth of diagnostic diversity, making Henry Ford an ideal place to train. Psychiatry residents work along with multidisciplinary teams of psychologists, nurses, social workers, administrators and students who come to learn and work at Henry Ford. We are a diverse group of allopathic and osteopathic graduates. One of the greatest strengths of our department is a collegial working environment. Our residents are actively involved in residency governance and work to shape our program to meet changing demands of an dynamic health care environment. We provide an opportunity to balance structured supervision with a high degree of practice autonomy, allowing each resident to develop their personal style, while also meeting or even exceeding core training competencies. An integrated approach allows us to emphasize both the science and the art of psychiatry. Our trainees are well qualified to assume sought after positions nationwide, enter private practice or fellowship training programs.

This web-site is intended only as an introduction to our Program; its clinical sites, curriculum, specialty tracks, the resident group and life in Detroit. We are proud of what we can offer, and hope this introduction conveys our sense of enthusiasm for the work we do. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you.
