Residency Information

Video: Anita Kablinger, M.D. introduces the Psychiatry program and three residents talk about their experiences in Roanoke.

Offering diverse experiences in private and public settings at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital, the Salem Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Catawba State Hospital, and Blue Ridge Behavioral Healthcare, the Virginia Tech Carilion Psychiatry Residency Training Program has become well-known as a high-caliber site for clinical training and research while establishing itself as a leader among psychiatry residency programs. The strong affiliation with Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine also enhances the learning experiences available to residents in this program.

The concept of strength in general medical principles and education continues to be a core standard of the program. The residency program remains committed to developing well-rounded and thoroughly competent psychiatrists.

More than 50 full-time, salaried faculty members, from some of the foremost institutions in the country, comprise the main teaching staff of the Virginia Tech Carilion Psychiatry Residency. By training residents in all aspects of contemporary psychiatry, the program develops each resident's core competencies and potential, while remaining flexible in meeting individual needs.

The residency program offers six positions each year. To complement the rotational curriculum in psychiatry, medicine, and neurology in the PGY1 year, residents are also given the opportunity to manage the total healthcare needs of a subset of patients in a primary care clinic longitudinally throughout their training.

The Virginia Tech Carilion Graduate Medical Education program offers fellowships in Geriatric Psychiatry and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
