Resident Research Curriculum

Writing Group

Year 1 - Systematic Review, Year 2 - Quality Improvement, Year 3 - Health Services Research, Year 4 - Dissemination Science

Our department has recently implemented a longitudinal writing and research curriculum to increase engagement and understanding of medical research.  Residents have the unique opportunity to be exposed to different approaches to research over the course of their training including systematic review, quality improvement, health service, and dissemination science. Residents are a part of teams that learn about the research process by doing small projects within the scope of each year’s highlighted domain. All domains are complementary and allow residents to obtain scholarly products as they progress.

Journal Club

Journal club presentations provide a forum through which residents, faculty, and staff can discuss recent findings important to mental health. We are now enlisting a teams-based approach with additional interactive elements to enhance engagement. Residents participate in journal club monthly.

Grand Rounds

Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine Grand rounds are held every first and third Thursday, September through June during the academic year.  All residents will complete a Grand Rounds as a requirement for graduation usually in their third or fourth year. Lectures from department faculty and invited lectures also occur throughout the year.
