Welcome from the Chair
Welcome and thank you for spending some time with our department!
Psychiatry and the behavioral sciences, as a field, are in a very exciting stage of development. We've seen extraordinary advances in our understanding of the causes of those illnesses that impact both brain and behavior. And we've learned so much about how to care for the people whose lives are impacted by them. There is still so much more left for us to learn, but that's why we're here.
If you or someone you know is looking for a patient appointment, you can find our clinic pages here. We will do our best to deliver empathic, holistic, person-centered patient care that incorporates recent advances in treatment - some of which has been developed right here in Wichita.
If you are a future physician, psychologist or psychiatrist and want to learn more about our training programs, click here. We will work with you to help you develop the knowledge and expertise you'll need for a fulfilling professional journey. If you want to read about innovations in practice, check out our continuing education, research and scholarly activity pages.
Our faculty, staff and learners are part of your community. We want to work with you to improve the lives of those who experience mental illnesses, and to support their families. If you have a question, please ask!
