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 | Christina L. Wichman, DO

Christina L. Wichman, DOIt 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, the Northeastern Wisconsin (NEW) Psychiatry Residency program has an impressive impact despite our size and location. Our first class graduated in June 2021 and we are proud that all graduates will staying locally in order to increase the number of psychiatrists in rural Wisconsin. Our graduates, as well as our current classes, have had a hand in shaping their own training. We pride ourselves on having strong relationships with our clinical partners in order to provide our residents with an individualized education that will carry them throughout their career.

As the current Vice Chair of Education for the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine at MCW, I have the privilege to oversee the educational endeavors of our three psychiatric residency programs, five psychiatric fellowships, health psychology residency, an NP residency and our medical student education at our three campuses. I was honored to take over the interim role of the program director at the NEW residency program and am committed to being in this role until a program director with as much passion about education as I am is found and on-boarded into this role.

I am currently a Professor of Psychiatry and Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Medical College of Wisconsin. I completed residency in Adult Psychiatry and fellowship in Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry at Mayo Clinic.

Clinically, I created and directs a co-located perinatal psychiatric service, embedded within the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and am Medical Director for The Periscope Project, a provider-to-provider teleconsultation service for providers caring for perinatal patients with psychiatric or substance use disorders.
During your time at NEW, the faculty and I look forward to helping you design your own path to the psychiatrist you want to become. I would welcome any questions that you may have; please do not hesitate to reach out to me regarding our new NEW Psychiatry Residency training program.
