Funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, the primary goal of the Psychiatry Residency Research Track is to foster the development of clinical scientists, supporting their transition into a career in academic psychiatry. This track will provide specialized research training and experiences for a subset of talented and industrious residents, mentoring them towards a research-focused career. Residents completing the two-year research track will be highly qualified to obtain a research fellowship following residency and to compete for early career grant awards.
A two-month Research Intensive Elective will be offered to support research endeavors of PGY-2 residents who are interested in pursuing research activities. These electives will provide an opportunity for interested residents to become embedded in a lab early in their residency training. These electives would allow an opportunity to explore and solidify research interests and may serve as a stepping stone for the Residency Research Track.
The Psychiatry Residency Research Track will consist of mentored research and targeted training opportunities during the PGY-3 and PGY-4 years. Participation in the Residency Research Track will include:
Interested residents, in collaboration with their Research Mentor, should complete an Application for the Mentored Research Track. The following application materials should be submitted to Dr. Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org in one Word Document by April 1 of the resident’s PGY2 year:
