New Psychiatry Residency Program to begin in 2017


We are excited to announce a new psychiatry residency program in Asheville, NC, at the Mountain Area Health Education Center (MAHEC). We hope to attract adventurous candidates who want to be on the ground floor of a new residency and can help develop a source of psychiatric care for Western North Carolina, a beautiful part of the world that needs more psychiatrists!

This MAHEC residency has been created to answer the longstanding need for psychiatrists in the western region of North Carolina. Our mission is to train excellent psychiatrists who will work with rural, underserved populations and are expert at consultation in collaborative care settings. A strength of this new program is that we are small enough to tailor the residency to particular interests a resident might have and large enough to offer a wide variety of clinical, administrative, and research experiences. We invite you to come check us out. Bring your excitement and sense of adventure with you, and share your ideas about what you want in a residency training program.

We encourage you to apply for a position with us!
