Psychiatry Residency Programs

Welcome to the Marshall Psychiatry Residency Programs at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine!

We have two inter-connected psychiatry residency programs! We highly encourage interested applicants to apply to both programs. Residents in each program will share many of the same experiences and will work together. The faculty are the same and there are many shared didactics. However, there are differences that distinguish each program.

The original program is entirely based in Huntington WV and has a total of 24 residents (6 residents per post graduate year). Residents rotate at a number of clinical sites including Cabell Huntington Hospital, St. Mary’s Hospital, the Huntington VAMC, Mildred Mitchell Bateman State Psychiatric Hospital, Marshall Psychiatry Outpatient Clinic and River Park Hospital. For more information on this program branch, please use the link here: Marshall Psychiatry Residency - Huntington

Our new rural program in Point Pleasant WV is accredited for 16 residents total, with 4 residents per post graduate year. This program is fully accredited by ACGME and residents have the excitement in shaping the unique rural aspects of this program. The rural site is located in an underserved region with no psychiatrists for several counties. Residents will truly appreciate the experience in providing care to the truly underserved. Residents will spend approximately half of their time in Huntington at the clinical rotations of our Huntington program, and half of their time in Point Pleasant WV. Residents will rotate in Huntington at the same clinical sites including Cabell Huntington Hospital, St. Mary’s Hospital, Huntington VAMC (Addiction), Mildred Mitchell Bateman State Psychiatric Hospital and Child & Adolescent Psychiatry clinic. The differences between the programs are several. In the internship year, rural residents have their non-psychiatry rotations including neurology, internal medicine/family medicine and ER at Rivers Health in Point Pleasant. Additionally, residents in the rural program will have their outpatient experiences in the 3rd and 4th year at the Point Pleasant office.

Both programs have truly exceptional educational and clinical opportunities for the incoming psychiatry resident!

The Psychiatry Residency Programs are under the direction of the full-time psychiatry faculty of the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine. Our training programs are relatively small, which results in a friendly, close-knit, and cohesive group.

We, the entire faculty and staff of the Marshall Department of Psychiatry, are available to assist you in your educational endeavors. Please look over our website and let us know if you have any questions before you apply. We look forward to hearing from you!
