Columbia University Psychiatric Epidemiology Training Program

The Columbia University Psychiatric Epidemiology Training Program (PET) was created in 1972 to train individuals from different disciplines in psychiatric epidemiology. The program has supported and trained over 145 researchers who have made valuable contributions within their respective research, clinical, and community settings. The mission of the program is to equip new generations of pre- and postdoctoral fellows with the skills and vision needed to conceptualize, measure, and test ideas about psychiatric disorders that will advance the field in both incremental and ground-breaking ways. To fulfill this mission, we emphasize a framework for investigating the etiology, course, and consequences of mental illness that highlights the dynamic interplay of multiple levels, that is, a person (biology, psychology), in context (family, social network, neighborhood, workplace, society) through time (person and contextual change).

University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Psychiatric Epidemiology Training Program

This program provides predoctoral and postdoctoral training for research in psychiatric epidemiology. The duration of training is generally 2 years for postdoctoral fellows and 4 years for predoctoral students. At the end of the training period, predoctoral students are competent in their basic discipline and have specific expertise in psychiatric epidemiology. They are ready for a postdoctoral fellowship or a junior faculty position and can design and conduct research. The postdoctoral fellows have increased their research skills and knowledge of research through participation in an ongoing research project and selected coursework and are prepared to function as faculty members and independent principal investigators. Indeed, our students have proven themselves to be well prepared. Almost all graduates of the Program are in academic or research positions, and most have received independent research funding.
