Historical Note

The Department of Psychiatry was the second clinical department formed in the College of Human Medicine (CHM) in 1968–1969. With the creation of the College of Osteopathic Medicine (COM) in 1970, this department became a joint department of both colleges.

The department has played a role in establishing a biopsychosocial approach to health care in both medical colleges. From its earliest days, the philosophy and goals have been guided by the belief that psychiatry occupies a singular position in medicine because of its in-depth understanding of patients from a biologic, psychological, and social perspective. The AIDS Education and Training Center was created in 1988 by Jon Lacey and closed in 2003. The focus was on educating health providers and others on all aspects of AIDS both here and in African countries.
