About Emory University:

The  Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at  Emory University School of Medicine is a program of excellence in areas of education, research and clinical services. More than 100 faculty are located throughout multiple sites in Atlanta including many world-renowned experts in areas of affective disorders, anxiety disorders, neuroendocrinology, psychoneuroimmunology, neuroimaging and psychotherapy. In the last 20 years, the department has emerged as one of the preeminent departments of psychiatry in the United States. It is genuinely a pluralistic department with distinct strengths in several areas including, but not limited to public psychiatry, research, psychoanalysis, forensic psychiatry, child and adolescent psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, and the recent addition of the combined internal medicine/psychiatry residency program.  It has expanded to over 150 faculty including psychiatrists, psychologists and basic neuroscientists. It is currently (2010-2011) ranked #14 in NIH funding and #15 in “America’s Best Hospitals” by US News and World Report.  The faculty are leaders in the biology and treatment of childhood, adolescent, and adult mood disorders (Craighead). There is remarkable expertise in brain imaging (Mayberg, Berns, Bremner), molecular neurobiology and genomics (Davis, Ressler, Cubells), post-traumatic stress disorder (Bremner, Rothbaum), animal models (Weiss), neuropharmacology (Owens), women’s mental health ( Newport), geriatric psychiatry (McDonald), psychoimmunology (Miller), drug and alcohol abuse (Coles, Howell), and psychoanalysis (Levy).
