Welcome! Thank you for your interest in Cleveland Clinic's Department of Psychiatry & Psychology and its training programs.
The Department is one of four in Cleveland Clinic's Neurological Institute, including Neurology, Neurosurgery and Neuroradiology. Coincidentally, the Department has its origins in the vision of Cleveland Clinic’s first chairman of Neurological Surgery, W. James Gardener, MD. At a 1943 meeting of Cleveland Clinic’s Administrative Board, he proposed adding a department of psychiatry to the growing Cleveland Clinic. Eventually, in 1946 the Department of Neuropsychiatry opened, and in 1960 split into separate departments with A. Dixon Weatherhead, MD, serving as Psychiatry’s first Chairman.
In July, 1961 the Department welcomed its first resident trainee, and by 1976 the General Adult Psychiatry Residency Training Program had achieved full accreditation. Since then, the Department has achieved perennial U.S. News & World Report top-ranking in Ohio, and its training programs have developed a similarly strong reputation.
The Department's academic mission has roots that are not only deep, but broadly based. In addition to its General Adult Psychiatry Residency Training Program, it has competitive fellowships in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychosomatic Medicine and post-doctoral fellowships in Neuropsychology, Health Psychology, and Chronic Pain. Long involved in the training of medical students, the department played a vital role in the planning and development of the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine (CCLCM), which opened its doors in 2004. Department staff, residents and fellows continue to play key roles as mentors and in didactic, seminar, office-based and bedside teaching of CCLCM and Case Western Reserve University medical students.
Cleveland Clinic has always been committed to excellence in patient care and research in the diseases that affect our patients. We take special pride in training future psychiatrists, clinical psychologists and neuropsychologists and look forward to meeting and visiting with you.
George E. Tesar, MD
Director of the General Psychology Residency Training Program
