The Department of Psychiatry has a strong interest in exploring the neurobiological and psychosocial underpinnings of mental illness. Residents benefit by their proximity to a robust research enterprise and have extensive opportunities to pursue their own research project. Our Research Track allows one to two residents per year to develop into clinician-scientists.
The University of Wisconsin Psychiatry Residency accepted its first Research Track resident in 2006. The Research Track provides 1-2 residents per year a unique opportunity to work with world-class scientists involved in a wide range of research projects. A first-year resident on the Research Track will meet with a research mentor regularly and will explore the various research options available to her. By the second year, the resident will have identified a specific lab. In the third and fourth years, the resident develops her own project and learns skills important for a career as a clinician-research, including grant writing, statistics, epidemiology and presentation skills. Graduates of the Research Track will be well prepared for a research fellowship at the University of Wisconsin or elsewhere.
