Department and Faculty
Specialists in psychiatry and psychology at Mayo Clinic provide comprehensive evaluations, diagnosis and treatment for patients with psychiatric problems.
The Department of Psychiatry and Psychology at Mayo Clinic is one of the largest psychiatric treatment groups in the United States, with more than 80 psychiatrists and psychologists representing every aspect of psychiatric medicine.
Mayo Clinic's child and adolescent psychiatrists are clearly identified as physicians who assume primary responsibility for the care of patients with mental disorders. We have a philosophy that expertise in psychotherapy is essential to the practice of psychiatry.
These values have helped place our child and adolescent psychiatry division at the forefront of consultation/liaison psychiatry, medical psychiatry and neuropsychiatry. At the same time, the theories, practices and humanistic traditions of the psychotherapeutic schools thrive at Mayo Clinic.
Many staff members also conduct research and are involved in training new specialists.
Most patients are treated on an outpatient basis, but the department conducts several inpatient programs within its Psychiatry Treatment Center.
Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic each year. They present their work during noon and/or morning lectures. You are encouraged to take full advantage of these opportunities.
