Northeastern Wisconsin Residency Program

Northeastern Wisconsin (N.E.W.) Residency Program


Building on the Medical College of Wisconsin’s community education focus, the Northeastern Wisconsin (N.E.W.) Psychiatry Residency Program is geared toward instilling the knowledge base and ability needed to care for the mental health needs of rural areas and beyond. Such a focus will not decrease a prospective applicant’s educational opportunities, but rather quite the opposite. Graduates of our program will have the practical experience needed to be psychiatric providers able to function, and lend consultation to other disciplines, in geographic areas of most any size.

A Message From Our Director | Lawrence (Larry) Maayan, MD

Lawrence Maayan, MDIt is a cliché here, but Green Bay is known as the smallest US city with its own NFL team. It is not just any team, but truly one of the most storied and successful franchises in professional sport. Likewise, our small new Northeast Wisconsin (NEW) program, calls for a regional impact that beIies our novelty and size. We will be graduating our first class this year. They have had a hand in shaping their own training and you will too. Before coming to Green Bay, I had many worked in many settings relevant to our residents’ current experience and career aspirations. I built my own solo private practice but also worked in academic, public, VA and State Hospital settings, spending nearly a decade of my career in clinical research where I had the privilege to mentor students from high school through fellowship who aspired for careers in mental health. Whatever your interests may be - from developing a psychotherapy expertise to piloting a first episode psychosis clinic - if you want to build it, we will do so together.

This individualized approach dovetails with our mission to increase access to psychiatry in this region, a small city surrounded by suburban and rural areas. Our graduates will be, de facto, regional experts for their mental health and medical colleagues. They have been trained in the best treatments of today and are prepared to implement the developments of tomorrow that we hope will cure and even prevent chronic mental illness. During your time at NEW MCW I and our faculty look forward to helping you design your own path to the psychiatrist you want to become and mentor you in the service of increasing access in our region and developing and disseminating your new found expertise. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions about our new NEW MCW psychiatry residency training program.
