About the Program

The VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System Psychiatry program is an integral part of the University of Michigan Department of Psychiatry. Together the departments host an internationally recognized faculty known for their contributions to the study of depression, stress and anxiety disorders, as well as other psychiatric disorders. The program is a leader in the translation of research from the "bench-top-to-the-clinician."

Important goals of the program include providing the highest quality psychiatric care to eligible veterans, conducting state-of-the-art basic and clinical psychiatric research relevant to veterans, and providing excellent training to the next generation of mental health clinicians and researchers.

The Psychiatry program has a broad range of general and specialized clinical programs. Its active laboratory research programs in the Trauma and Stress and Anxiety Research Laboratory, Health Service Research and Development, and Laboratory of Affective Neuropharmacology have produced internationally recognized work and are considered leaders in the area. VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System's Psychiatry program is a training site for the University of Michigan Residency Training Program, VA Psychology Training Program, and associated programs for Nursing and Social Work.
