Year 3

Dedicated Research Time

One day per week

The PGY3 year consists of an integrated 12 months of training in both research and outpatient psychiatry, mostly with adult patients, but also with the addition of a long-term psychodynamically-focused child case.

Residents have one day a week of protected mentored research time. Trainees select their own research mentor who will foster their growth as an academic child psychiatrist and help them start a successful research project. Residents are able to participate in the Child Study Center research seminar as they develop their own project in their chosen mentor's lab. In this year and others, residents may choose to take courses designed to enhance understanding of research methods or scientific tops. Residents attend adult PGY3 didactics and take adult psychiatry call overnight in the Psychiatric Emergency room..
