Psychiatry Residents' Association (PRA)

Welcome to the Psychiatry Residents' Association!

Welcome to the Yale Psychiatry Residents' Association (PRA) website.

The PRA's primary focus is to advocate for residents. We serve as a liaison between residents and faculty to express the wants/concerns of fellow residents, while also helping to cultivate an educational and FUN working environment.

The PRA sponsors many educational and social programs, ranging from master interviewing sessions accompanied by wine and cheese evenings with faculty, to the Psychiatry and Cinema series. It also oversees resident participation in committees focused on resident and medical school education. These opportunities promote cohesiveness amongst the residents, while also affording the opportunity to directly impact and influence the direction of our program. Another HUGE aspect of the PRA is recruiting the new generation of diverse, highly intelligent and interesting residents. The PRA arranges the pre-interview dinners, leads tours around New Haven, and encourages residents to host applicants during their visits at Yale.

WELCOME to the PRA!!
