Mission & Vision

Our Mission

Our mission in the Department of Psychiatry is centered on providing outstanding care to patients and families; educating future generations of mental health professionals; creating new knowledge; and fostering productive collaborations in our region and beyond.

Our Vision

Academic Psychiatry Department with a “permeable boundary” across disciplines, roles, and departments. Our goals:

  • A multi-disciplinary department that maximizes the strengths of each discipline while aspiring to move the field forward together as a team.
  • A department with integrated missions—clinical care, community service, research, and education—and without the silos based on academic and clinical roles.
  • A department that strives to integrate behavioral health services vertically and horizontally across URMC and deliver world class, compassionate care for psychiatric patients in our community and beyond.
