Tom Briese

Assistant Professor


I received my BA in Biochemistry from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota, Winona, MN. I received my medical degree here at the University of Minnesota, where I further completed my psychiatry residency and my fellowship in child & adolescent psychiatry where I was chief fellow.

I am a child psychiatrist with a focus on the treatment of children and adolescents with mood and anxiety disorders and the education of medical trainees. I am also excited to continue working with the child and adolescent psychiatry fellows through my role as associate program director of the fellowship program.

Within the university, I am a member of the Fellowship Recruitment Committee, the Outpatient Fellow Clinic Leadership Team, the Special Review Committee and the Operations Committee.
