Welcome to the Brown Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior

The Department of Psychiatry & Human Behavior (DPHB) at Brown is at the cutting edge of advances in our basic understanding of brain function. These advances are leading to the development of new, more effective treatments for the major neuropsychiatric disorders. Fundamental progress in our understanding of the neural underpinnings of cognition and emotion will lead to a synthesis of how psychological and pharmacologic treatments work. As the largest department in the medical school, with over 150 full time academic faculty and over 270 clinical faculty, as well as the department with the most external funding, the DPHB is well positioned for the future.
