Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences Alumni

Message from the Chair

Thomas W. Uhde, MD

Dear Distinguished Alumni, 

It is a pleasure to write to you today on behalf of the Medical University of South Carolina’s Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences. We are a community of excellence, rooted in a history of innovative research, renowned clinical services, and one of the pre-eminent education and training programs in the nation.

Our faculty includes distinguished clinicians, educators, researchers and leaders in our field who set the national agenda in psychiatry through their work. The Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences is consistently ranked among the top ten Departments of Psychiatry in NIH research funding. The Department and the Institute of Psychiatry continue to play a major role in the provision of state of the art clinical care in the greater Charleston area, including the use of telehealth and other cutting-edge, innovative treatments. Our training programs continue to thrive, and the number of residency applications for our general training program continues to grow, with over 1000 applications for next year’s class. In the 2015 Doximity/U.S. News Ranking, the general psychiatry training program at MUSC was ranked #6 out of 55 southern programs and #26 out of 197 programs nationally.

All of these accomplishments would not be possible without our superb trainees. Therefore, we are reaching out to reconnect with our alumni to thank you for all that you have done, and continue to do, on behalf of the Department and MUSC. 

We are excited to see our alumni at various events throughout the year. These events are designed to help you network with other alumni, and provide you with updates on the department's research, education and clinical programs.
