Office of Education and Training (OET) Overview

The Department of Psychiatry is dedicated to preparing health care professionals at all levels to deliver high quality mental health care, conduct innovative research, and to become the next generation of mental health educators. Our training programs encompass a full spectrum of educational levels (from medical student and residency education through post-doctoral fellowships) and have been widely recognized for their consistent high quality.


OET Monthly Newsblast (March 2022)

PsychTherapy Now Available: 

Beginning January 3rd, 2022 we started 90-day trial access to APA PsychTherapy through the Health Science Library (HSL) that we believe will be of great benefit to those of you engaged in training. It is a compilation of psychotherapy training videos meant to be used as an educational resource for clinical training. 

If you are able, please try out this resource during the period of January-April 2022, use it as much as possible, and notify other individuals across the Anschutz Medical Campus who may have an interest in this resource.The HSL has put APA PsychTherapy in their budget for next year, but it is not yet approved—hence the trial period. 

To access on campus, simply go to this website:

If you are not on campus, you must be logged in with Duo (CU VPN connection) in order to access the resource. If you don't know how to access the CU VPN, here is a guide:

Note: There are four categories by which you can access videos, but the only one that seems to work for our trial is the category “Title." When you arrive on the landing page, click on “Title” and you can search for videos.

New Faculty Development Workshop:

The new Faculty Development Workshop will be hosted on April 19th from 1-4 pm. For more information, please keep an eye out for an email with the calendar event as an attachment!
