Family Medicine 2020 group shot


The Family Medicine-Psychiatry Residency at the University of Iowa is a five-year ACGME-accredited program that offers combined training to prepare residents to practice simultaneously as a family physician and psychiatrist. The steadfast support of both sponsor departments enables residents to fully participate in learning activities in both departments.

Residents develop expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness in primary care populations, improve the management of medical problems in the chronically mentally ill who are living within the community, and gain skills as a psychiatric consultant to medical physicians.

Our community of dually-trained faculty members continues to grow, with seven faculty members who have completed combined training in either Family Medicine-Psychiatry or Internal Medicine-Psychiatry.
