The Academic Program

Psychiatry (PSTY) is a branch of medicine that derives its theoretical foundations from the neurosciences, as well as the psychological and social sciences. The investigation of the biological basis of mental illness is one of the most exciting areas of medical research today and is revolutionizing our understanding of mind-body relationships.

The Department of Psychiatry contributes to the overall mission of the School of Medicine by providing leadership in psychiatric training, teaching, research, and services in Hawai‘i, Asia, and the Pacific Basin. The department is committed to expanding knowledge within a cross-cultural and bio-psycho-social framework.

Traditional courses have been replaced with the problem-based learning curriculum. Psychiatric issues are addressed throughout the curriculum but are particularly emphasized in the second year during the brain and behavior sub-unit of Unit MD6 and in the third year Psychiatry Clerkship.
