Family Medicine & Psychiatry Program
Welcome to the Family Medicine and Psychiatry program! We began our combined program in 1995 at the request of one of the University of Cincinnati medical students, Lisa Cantor, which makes our program the longest-running FMP program in the United States. We are also one of the few that is run by a training director dedicated only to the combined program.
We have filled either one or two positions each year (except for the Class of 2005) since 2000 (with Dr. Cantor as our first graduate) - graduating 18 residents from our program.
Our residents comprise a close-knit group strengthened by monthly meetings exclusively for the combined residents at a local venue or resident's home, our yearly trip as a program to the Association for Medicine and Psychiatry Annual Meeting, and other social gatherings.
Our residents are very supportive of each other and available to lend help in both personal and professional situations. In addition, being involved in both worlds of Family Medicine and Psychiatry throughout the five years allows us to develop relationships with residents not only in these programs but also in other departments, including the five-year programs Triple Board Program in Child and Adult Psychiatry and Pediatrics.
The demand for graduates with integrated training in psychiatry and medicine has visibly increased in recent years, partly due to demands for and innovative efforts at health care reform.
We're confident that this career pathway integrating psychiatry and medicine will play a formative role in our new health care system, and we hope you'll join us in shaping these new approaches.
