Utah State Hospital employs fourteen psychiatrists, the majority of whom are board-certified, to provide patient care and carry out administrative duties. Services provided include treatment for adult, forensic, child, adolescent, and geriatric patients. The psychiatrists meet regularly to study cases, review policies, and receive continuing education in order to utilize the most current diagnoses and treatments available.
Psychiatrists serve as leaders for each of the patient care treatment teams. They receive on-site support from faculty of the University of Utah Department of Psychiatry, and some are members of the university faculty. The hospital also serves as a training site for some of the university's psychiatric residents.
