The Research Colloquium for Junior Psychiatrists is presented by APA in conjunction with the APA Council on Research's Workgroup on Research Training. The event includes a two-day, immersive, research experience for junior psychiatrists in the beginner-level (Track 1) and intermediate-level (Track 2) of their research training in psychiatry. It is an important opportunity for mentorship, guidance, information on research career development and grantsmanship, and networking with senior research mentors in psychiatry (i.e., Drs. Charles Nemeroff, Kerry Ressler, Anissa Abi-Dargham, and Wilson Compton) and from the sponsoring organizations. Candidates whose research interests are similar to those listed below are encouraged to apply. Potential candidates with research interests in health disparities and substance use, and those from underrepresented and minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
The two-day workshop on May 20-21, 2023 at the APA Annual Meeting will focus on the following six research areas:
- Molecular, Translational, and Neuroscience Research
- Clinical Psychobiology
- Treatment from Psychopharmacology and Psychotherapy to Neural Strategies
- Alcohol, Pain, and Drug Abuse Research
- Health Disparities and Health Services Research
- Military and Veteran Mental Health Including PTSD, TBI, and Suicide
Colloquium participants must attend the one-day Colloquium Booster Session on December 3, 2022. The Booster Session is held at the ACNP Annual Meeting six months after the 2-day Colloquium at the APA Annual Meeting. Mentees provide updates on their research in small breakout groups with mentor guidance and feedback. In addition, there will be presentations on topics identified by mentees as relevant to their ongoing development (e.g. presentation skills, grant management, and strengthening research methods).
