Year in Review: 2023

A Note from Psychiatry Leadership

At the University of Pittsburgh Department of Psychiatry, we excel in our mission to:

  • Provide superb behavioral health services to our patients and their families;

  • Pursue the development of better diagnostic techniques and therapeutic interventions through innovative research;

  • Provide a stimulating learning environment for medical and graduate students, residents, psychology interns, and postdoctoral fellows.

Our success in each area depends on an interactive community of clinicians, scientists and educators who bring diversity in background, experience, expertise and perspective to our mission.

An essential partner in this work is UPMC Western Psychiatric Hospital, a national leader in innovative treatment of mental health and addiction disorders. Moreover, our preeminent academic faculty of more than 240 members trained in multiple basic and clinical science disciplines is at the heart of our success in providing superior behavioral health care and in training the next generation of innovative researchers and clinicians.

We hope that you will explore our “Year in Review 2023” to learn more about our outstanding faculty, education and training opportunities, research, and other programs and initiatives that are transforming the science and practice of psychiatry and hope you'll consider voting for UPMC Western Psychiatric Hospital in the upcoming U.S. News & World Report "Best Hospitals" survey.
