Residency Research

The Emory Psychiatry Residency Program supports all residents in academic scholarly endeavors through a mentor match program and travel support to academic meetings to present their work. Residents interested in further developing their research interests into a career as an academic psychiatrist are encouraged to apply to the Emory Psychiatry Residency Research Track.

Emory Psychiatry Residency Research Track

Directed by Drs. Andrew Miller, Kerry Ressler, and Michael Treadway, the Residency Research track is funded by the National Institute of Mental Health and provides specialized mentorship and intensive research training opportunities through financial support and protected research time. Specifically, residents on the research track are eligible to receive:

  • Stipend support for up to 50% dedicated research time in the 3rd year
  • Stipend support for up to 80% dedicated research time in the 4th year
  • A minimum of $10,000 over two years for research activities
  • Additional opportunities to support research activities and travel to meetings

Research Track members are also invited to participate in monthly research seminars and lunches and have access to the Clinician Scientist Toolbox Program.

Residents on the research track have had a strong record of success, with multiple publications in high impact journals, presentations at major national and international meetings, and high success in obtaining additional research funds through competitive resident research awards.
