Program Mission

The mission of the Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas (BHSET) Psychiatry Residency Program is to train high quality physicians who will serve as leaders in the local community and in the field of psychiatry.  BHSET will instill within each resident the values, clinical skills, medical knowledge, and interpersonal skills necessary to care for a variety of psychiatric illness and diseases among their patients to maintain and enhance their overall health.  Our program emphasizes lifelong learning behaviors within residents, both clinically and academically, to propel continuous improvement during their training as well as in independent practice thereafter.  Residents in our program will be exposed to various clinical learning environments in the community setting to prepare them for practice in any setting following graduation from the program.

Our program aims to:

  • Prepare residents to practice psychiatry independently through a structured, comprehensive education and clinical training in multiple care settings.
  • Train compassionate residents who become leaders within the community and field of psychiatry by continually seeking opportunities for improvement in areas including academia, clinical practice, scholarly activity, and cultural awareness.
  • Produce psychiatrists capable of managing and treating a broad range of psychiatric illness while improving the overall well-being of their patients and families.
  • Foster an environment that continuously develops the residents’ interpersonal skills among the healthcare team, including the nurses, mid-level providers, and administration, in order to provide optimal healthcare management for each patient.
