What Our Graduates Say
“The UICOMP Psychiatry Residency Program was extremely effective in preparing me for the challenges associated with working as an outpatient psychiatrist. The unique educational curriculum and diversity of doctors and patients was second to none.”
– Stephen Krieg, MD
“My psychiatry residency training at UICOMP was nothing short of excellent. Our residency program is exceptional in preparing the next generation of psychiatrists to provide optimal care across multiple clinical domains. The curriculum’s dual emphasis on advanced psychopharmacology and psychotherapy training allows us to take a comprehensive, compassionate, and patient-centered approach. This residency program afforded me many opportunities for personal and professional growth that I wouldn’t have gotten elsewhere, and I’m so proud to say I trained here. I have created bonds with my attendings and fellow residents that will continue long after my training days in Peoria are over.”
– Amanda Vastag, MD
“I couldn’t have asked for better training. UICOMP Psychiatry doesn’t only teach a broad range of clinical practice and competence, but also allows you to gain academic, leadership, and management skills. If I had to do it again, I would definitely pick the same program.”
– Aman Singh, MD
