Thank you for your interest in the Family Medicine-Psychiatry Residency Program at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.
Our five-year program offers combined training that prepares you to practice simultaneously as a family physician and psychiatrist. Developed through a collaboration between George Bergus, MD, professor in the Department of Family Medicine, and William Yates, MD, former professor in the Department of Psychiatry, the program enrolled its first residents in 1998. The program's first graduate, Alison Lynch, MD, is now the program's director.
A critical element of our program's success is that both of our sponsor departments remain steadfast in their support for combined training. Resident education is a priority, and our residents get to fully participate in learning activities in both departments. Moreover, our community of dually-trained faculty members continues to grow. A total of seven faculty members have completed combined training in either family medicine-psychiatry or internal medicine-psychiatry, many at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.
We encourage you to explore our website and contact us with any questions you may have for our residents and/or program director.
Our program will expose you to the widest range of patients and learning situations. Our community will provide a high quality of living. And you'll find a salary and benefit package that competes favorably with accredited programs in an academic medical setting.
"Iowa Family/Psych has a foundation of combined trained faculty who understand the complexity of completing two specialties simultaneously. They are continually looking for unique and innovative ways to better the training and help the residents to achieve at the highest levels. The unique longitudinal curriculum, dedicated Med-Psych unit, and supportive environment makes this a great place to train."
“Giving unified care to complex families is what draws me to the field of combined family medicine and psychiatry. Great people and two departments under one roof that work together so well drew me to Iowa.”
"Residency training in the FMP program at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics is a fantastic opportunity to train with dedicated, accomplished faculty and supportive, enthusiastic fellow trainees. I'm particularly excited for the chance to be a part of an innovative longitudinal curriculum that is unique to FMP training at U of Iowa."
