There are now more than 200 faculty members in our department.

The primary faculty members are engaged in psychiatric research and patient care and many of them teach students, residents and fellows at Vanderbilt Medical School. 

The secondary faculty members hold a primary appointment in another department at Vanderbilt University and enhance the scholarship of our department through scientific collaborations and teaching.

The volunteer faculty members are mental health clinicians (psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses) in the Nashville area, who support the teaching in our department with their wide-ranging expertise. The volunteer faculty members also include a few academic psychiatrists at other institutions who hold an adjunct appointment in our department.

All active faculty members and all alumni of our faculty and training programs are members of the Luton Society, a professional society associated with the Vanderbilt Department of Psychiatry.
