The University of North Carolina Hospitals Forensic Psychiatry Residency Program is a 12-month educational program with the goal of preparing psychiatrists for a career in forensic psychiatry through a combination of supervised clinical experiences and didactic programs. The program has an emphasis on producing forensic psychiatrists for the public sector and provides educational opportunities in a wide range of criminal and civil settings. Residents have extensive opportunities to engage in supervised evaluations of individuals in the criminal justice system in both pre-trial and post-conviction settings. In addition, forensic psychiatry residents obtain experience in courtroom testimony, family law, child forensic issues, and civil litigation. Forensic psychiatry residents rotate on the inpatient pre-trial evaluation unit for the State of North Carolina, mental health clinics in nearby prisons, outpatient forensic evaluation clinic, and outpatient forensic family law evaluation team, with the latter two located on the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Campus.
