Our psychiatry residency training program has developed a Research Track as outlined herein. The purpose of the Track is to facilitate development of a career as a scientist devoted to testing hypotheses relevant to mental health and the treatment of mental disorders, whether from basic science, translational, clinical or mental health care systems perspectives.
Our faculty includes federally funded investigators in each of these domains with extensive experience serving as mentors for junior investigators. They are very interested in providing such training for interested and qualified psychiatry residents in our program. Please find some examples of institutional seminars here (DOCX).
Research time allotted over the four years of psychiatry residency are 2 months PGY1, 4 months PGY2, 50% time PGY3, and 50% time PGY4. There are also several post-residency specialty fellowships available in which one could continue her or his research program. These include neuropsychiatry, geriatric psychiatry, sleep medicine, addiction psychiatry, child and adolescent psychiatry and outcomes-oriented public sector psychiatry.
