The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences has approximately ​64 full-time faculty members, including approximately ​11 psychiatrists, ​50 psychologists, and ​3 psychiatric social workers. In addition, there are six part-time faculty, and other supporting staff such as psychometrists, and psychiatric nurses. Faculty members from other academic departments also teach or provide supervision. All psychologists are on campus and most in full time positions. All together approximately 61 onsite psychologists participate in one or both of our residencies.

The educational programs of the department include the APA accredited predoctoral clinical psychology internship, residency in neuropsychology, residency in clinical psychology, a psychiatric residency, and an undergraduate medical education program. The department offers all students, whether they be psychology residents, psychiatric residents, or medical students, repeated and intense exposure to all the disciplines in the mental health field; thus, the residents will receive most of their supervision from neuropsychologists, as well as some supervision from neurologists, other psychologists, and medical personnel.
