Richard C. Veith, MD
Richard D. and Bernice E. Tutt Professor in the Neurosciences
Chair, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral SCiences
The core values and priorities of the UW Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences reflect the influences of the Northwest, a still emerging section of the country that is blessed with remarkable beauty, tremendous natural and cultural resources, an entrepreneurial spirit, and a highly educated populace. These basic ingredients have produced advances in aerospace, computer technology, biotechnology and, most recently, global health and have brought us Jimi Hendrix, Nirvana, and Pearl Jam. In its relatively short history (established in 1945), the UW School of Medicine (SOM) has emerged as the leading public medical school in NIH research funding while simultaneously ranking as the number one rated medical school in primary care training. This is a highly unusual juxtaposition of achievements, due in large part to the energy and talent of the faculty but also because, as the one medical school serving five Northwest states, the SOM has responsibility for the health care and health care workforce needs of Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, Idaho (WWAMI).
