The psychiatry program’s mission is to develop the next generation of physicians and physician leaders. As a part of HCA Healthcare, we are driven by a single mission: Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.
This program is designed to offer residents a rewarding, educational environment where residents are provided individualized learning opportunities by faculty and staff who support and sustain one another throughout quality care delivery. Our faculty are committed to ensuring the residents clinical experience and educational needs are fulfilled while expanding residents’ perspectives to be inclusive of cultures, values and ideals.
The psychiatry residency program at Southern Hills Hospital and Medical Center is part of the Sunrise Health GME Consortium here in Las Vegas, Nevada. The psychiatry program is dedicated to furthering the HCA mission of commitment to the care and improvement of human life. We seek to achieve this through building a foundation of inclusion, compassion, and respect.
Initial accreditation was granted in April of 2019 and the inaugural PGY-1 class of 4 residents started their journey with us on July 1st, 2019. For the incoming class in 2020, applications will be accepted only through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service) and participation in the NRMP (National Resident Match Program.)
Interviews will be scheduled throughout the months of November, December, and January and applicants will have the opportunity to meet with faculty and have a candid, faculty-free dinner with the current PGY-1 class.
