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:
Two residents per year will be chosen to participate in the Residency Research Track. 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 by April 1 of the resident’s PGY2 year:
