Department Chair: Julie P Gentile, MD

Wright State's widely recognized Psychiatry programs include, but are not limited to, a city-wide emergency psychiatry service, a state hospital staffed by our faculty and residents, comprehensive child and adolescent psychiatry services, a rural psychiatry presence, provision of mental health services to the homeless, care for the indigent within the Dayton community hospitals, and a unique program in the assessment and treatment of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The quality of undergraduate and graduate medical education programs in the department has been acknowledged regionally and nationally. In addition to prominent research efforts in neuroimaging, schizophrenia, eating and personality disorders, to name but a few, the residency training program offers in-depth opportunities in learning about providing psychotherapy, an important psychosocial component in caring for all of our patients. We welcome your interest in any aspect of our department.
