Curriculum 2020 – Pathways In Mental Health Education

Curriculum 2020 logoThe Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior consists of faculty, trainees and technical and support staff that share a common mission:

  • To make discoveries that advance our understanding of the human mind, interactions with the body and the practice of health care;
  • To educate the next generation of scientists, doctors and other health professionals; and 
  • To serve as stewards of care and science in Mississippi and beyond.

The 2019-020 academic year is an exciting time for education in the UMMC Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior. Although our curricula are always evolving through continuous quality improvement, Curriculum 2020 – Pathways In Mental Health Education represents a more dramatic shift. With input from program directors, faculty, clinicians, residents, interns, and medical students, Curriculum 2020 includes a shared, protected education block for all clinical training programs that allows us to further enhance inter-professional learning, program-specific learning, quality improvement, scholarly projects, and supervision.
