Education is our mission at Tower Health-Brandywine Hospital General Psychiatry. We inaugurated our program in 2020, from the merger of a well-established psychiatry training institution – Drexel University Psychiatry, and a diverse and thriving nonprofit health system – Tower Health. Our alumni residents are a diverse, talented cohort who are passionate about psychiatry, psychotherapy and advocacy. The Drexel tradition emphasizes the importance of creating a nurturing, cohesive, friendly and collegial learning environment, and an unwavering commitment to education.

Our program provides a variety of experiences to ensure that our trainees are exposed to a wealth of different types of patients and clinical approaches. We are located in one of the most diverse, vibrant and affordable urban areas in the country. Our didactic curriculum and supervisory experiences emphasize a thorough and well-rounded approach to psychiatry with a substantial devotion to psychotherapy as a critical part of the skill-set of every psychiatrist. Our faculty and department leadership create a culture of continual evaluation and improvement of our program. Our faculty are national leaders in psychiatric education and psychotherapy training. Our trainees have successfully published and presented both locally and nationally. Our program has a history of commitment to community service and cultural diversity. The Delaware Valley (formerly Philadelphia) LGBTQI Health Care Symposium, for example, is a resident-driven event. We pay close attention to residents’ wellness and resilience. For example, we have a Resident Wellness Committee, annual resident retreat, process groups, Movie Club, social gatherings/events, holiday parties, Wellness and Patient Safety/Quality Improvement Symposium. Our program director has an “open-door” policy. These are examples of how we care for you and your future as our professional colleagues.

We are delighted that you are considering training at Tower Health-Brandywine Hospital General Psychiatry and thank you for reviewing our program website. We are looking forward to meeting you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions regarding our program.

Donna Sudak, MD
