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.
To be eligible to join the research track OR to apply for any financial support for travel through the research track, you MUST attend at least 50% of the Clinical Scientist Training Program (CSTP) meetings as well as at least 50% of the research lunch meetings (see schedule at bottom of the page for 2016-2017 dates). In order to apply for funds for research activities, residents need to satisfy the criteria above, complete the online Clinical Research Certificate Program, and prepare a 1 page summary of research goals. To be eligible for salary support for research, residents must satisfy the above criteria, have a primary research mentor, and have approval of a research project (including hypotheses and aims) from research track leadership. As part of the salary support for research, residents must also meet weekly wih research track leadership for advanced mentorship in core research skills, such as grant writing and manuscript preparation.
Interested individuals should note their interest in applying to the research track on their applications to Emory, and should rank the research track separately in the match. The following materials for the Application for the Mentored Research Track should be submitted to Dr. Miller at email@example.com in one Word Document:
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:
