Head: Charles F. Zorumski, MD, Samuel B. Guze Professor of Psychiatry and Professor of Neurobiology
The Department of Psychiatry has been at the forefront of psychiatric care for decades. Members of the department were among the first to champion the medical model of psychiatry and view psychiatric dysfunction as an interaction between genes and environment. The department and its faculty continue to be in the vanguard of both the study and treatment of mental illness. In order to prepare for the future, the department also devotes a significant amount of time and effort to the training of the next generation of clinicians and researchers.
