George R. Brown, MD, DFAPA
Associate Chair for VA Affairs
I would like to welcome all interested physicians applying for our program in my dual roles in the university and the VA Medical Center. We are a decentralized program, relying on our affiliated medical centers as important training centers for our residents and medical students.
Our program has the closest affiliation with a VA of an medical school in the country, with sharing of a beautiful 300+ acre campus in the mountains of East Tennessee. The VA faculty includes 15 full time psychiatrists, many of whom hold certifications in sub-specialty areas of psychiatry in addition to board certification in adult psychiatry.
As Chief of Psychiatry at the VA, I consider it vitally important for our residents and medical students to have a wonderful training experience at our facilities, and I welcome the opportunity to meet with you and discuss your interests.
