This program stands out thanks to our strong commitment to the local communities that we serve in Connecticut. Across all of our training sites, you partner with faculty who are committed to teaching and who act as excellent role models and mentors. Charlotte Hungerford Hospital, our primary teaching hospital, serves the rural northwest corner of Connecticut.
St. Vincent's Medical Center
Founded in 1903, St. Vincent’s Medical Center is a 473-bed tertiary care hospital and Level II trauma center. Here, residents train in internal medicine, neurology, emergency psychiatry, geriatric psychiatry and consultation liaison psychiatry.
St. Vincent's Behavioral Health Services
St. Vincent’s Behavioral Health Services is a 76-bed inpatient psychiatric facility that serves as an annex to the main campus of St. Vincent’s Medical Center, providing inpatient care for children, adolescents and adults with mental health and dual diagnosis substance use disorders.

Charlotte Hungerford Hospital
Charlotte Hungerford Hospital is a 122-bed community hospital that serves as a regional healthcare resource for 100,000 residents of Litchfield County and northwest Connecticut. The vast majority of Litchfield County is wooded, with scattered lakes, rivers and hills contributing to a quintessential New England charm.
This location offers residents the opportunity to care for a rural, underserved and socioeconomically diverse population. The patients and the local community are warm and welcoming, and along with the hospital staff and faculty, are committed to educating the next generation of physicians.
Here, third- and fourth-year residents train in an outpatient psychiatry clinic with medication management and psychotherapy, engage in rural community psychiatry experiences and have multiple elective opportunities and supervisory experiences to prepare for independent practice. Other trainees at the hospital include residents of the Quinnipiac Rural Family Medicine Residency Program.
