I am Dr. Gary Gala, Associate Chair for Education & Training for the UNC Department of Psychiatry. Thank you for your interest in Psychiatry. This is an exciting and dynamic time in our field, as new discoveries inform and improve the treatment of our patients. Psychiatry is a challenging yet rewarding discipline, and our large patient population spans the ethnic, socioeconomic and educational spectrum. On the website is a vast array of information about our educational programs, current residents and fellows, and details about life at UNC. We hope you decide to continue your medical career in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
