Message from Program Director Jeannie Lochhead

Greetings from Jeannie Lochhead

Program Director and Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry

Jeannie LoccheadCongratulations on selecting psychiatry for your residency! It is an incredibly rewarding profession, and we encourage you to consider UCR for your training.

The psychiatry residency at UCR School of Medicine was founded through robust collaborations that are united by one mission, to train the next generation of psychiatrists. The best way to advance the field of psychiatry is through partnerships, which we do through partnering with our patients, community organizations, academic centers, public health systems, researchers and you. The medical school is one of seven academic colleges and professional schools at UCR. We are devoted to providing you with these ample resources to reach your fullest potential.

Our mission is to provide you with an exceptional educational experience. We believe this is accomplished by providing a supportive environment that promotes your personal and professional growth. As a resident, you will not be burdened with required call, but encouraged to develop your individual education plan. Our residents enhance the UCR family through their work in diverse communities, presenting at conferences, publishing their ideas, and providing exceptional clinical care. You will be supported as a valued colleague and encouraged to succeed.

Thank you for considering UC Riverside Psychiatry to begin this exciting journey.

Jeannie D. Lochhead, M.D.
