The Research Track (RT) is a specialized training program for psychiatry residents planning careers as physician-scientists. This individualized program is geared toward MD-PhD graduates, as well as MD/DO graduates, who aim to become clinician researchers.
The RT is structured to integrate concurrent high-quality clinical training with personalized development of scientific skills and knowledge, post-doctoral research experience, and comprehensive mentorship. This longitudinal program allows each RT resident to develop a line of research while achieving competency as a clinical psychiatrist.
Upon completing the program, RT residents are positioned to apply for a career development award (CDA) and launch their careers as clinician-investigators.
