Resident Psychiatric Research Scholars

The American Psychiatric Foundation and Janssen Pharmaceuticals are co-sponsoring a program to identify promising PGY-1, PGY-2, and PGY-3 psychiatric residents with the potential to become leaders in clinical and health services research in all areas of psychiatric research.

Emphasis will be placed on special mentoring and career enrichment programs both at the APA Annual Meeting and throughout the year. Each participant will be asked to identify an individual research mentor that will oversee the resident's fellowship. The mentor will advise and encourage the Scholar during the one year fellowship. The scholar will receive $2,500 during the fellowship, to assist in their research career development (e.g., for use in developing a pilot research project, obtaining statistical consultation, or visiting potential research training programs). The program also provides funding for travel to the American Psychiatric Association (APA) Annual Meeting for the one year of the fellowship. The deadline for applications is January 15, 2016.

The American Psychiatric Foundation/Janssen Resident Psychiatric Research Scholars program is administered by the American Psychiatric Institute for Research and Education. An advisory committee of senior research psychiatrists will assist in the evaluation and selection of the Scholars.
