Wednesday mornings are reserved for academic activities. Residents participate in Didactics lectures ( 8:00-12:00) to include small group discussions with experts in Pharmacology, Neuroimaging, Clinical Care, and Epidemiology.
Residents are expected to complete at least one scholarly activity to include developing a lecture, writing a review paper, a research paper, or other activity approved by the Program Director.
Emory has a diverse faculty devoted to researching addiction --- from Molecular Neuroscience, to Rodent and Primate Animal Models, to Human Neuroimaging, Clinical Trials, and epidemiological studies. Residents may elect to pursue research projects in any of these areas.
