A striking feature of the department's research effort is that our residents publish at a prolific rate, perhaps inspired by the hundreds of papers the faculty regularly author.
Building on a rich tradition of incisive scholarship and research, faculty are currently involved in numerous and varied projects that include ADHD, schizophrenia, Psychosis and ADHD. Funded on-going research includes neuorscience of memory, neuroimaging, autism, ADHD, PTSD & addiction. Click here to see specific research intrests for some of our faculty.
Residents are continually exposed to research being carried on in the department and are encouraged to participate in or to complete projects of their own. Our training emphasizes critical thinking and provides residents with the tools necessary to evaluate and interpret psychiatric research.
Listed below is a sampling of some of the resident research activity over the past few years:
A seminar is conducted in which residents critically examine research papers from the current literature and determine whether research design and procedures are adequate. Statistical analytic techniques are reviewed, and the transfer of research findings to clinical practice is emphasized.
Each resident is also required to complete a scholarly analysis of some important psychiatric issue, which can lead to a formal research project and published articles.
