Beth Israel Medical Center: Psychiatry Residency and Fellowship Programs

Research: Resident Research Program

At the Mount Sinai Beth Israel Psychiatry Residency we offer comprehensive research training that is available to all residents.  Residents can begin a research project as early as the PG-1 year.  They learn about opportunities during the Biological Psychiatry Research Seminar.

All PG-2 residents attend a Summer Research Seminar where they learn about all research projects in the department as discussed by our faculty mentors.  At the end of this seminar each resident chooses a mentor and a research project.  They can join an existing project or start their own project under the guidance of the mentor.  Residents work with research volunteers and graduate students who can assist with submissions to the Institutional Review Board.  There is also statistical consultants available in the department and hospital-wide.

Most residents will select projects that involve some aspect of data collection.  Some residents will concentrate their efforts on a comprehensive literature review.  All residents are given support and encouragement if they choose to present their work at a national meeting and/or publish their work.  Departmental funds are available to pay for travel to meetings where research is presented.  Another fund supports resident travel to meetings when they are not presenting research.  This is in addition to a small book allowance.

During the PG-4 year, all residents are given significant protected time to complete their research projects.  At the end of the year residents present at departmental grand rounds.  Prior to this they receive training in giving Powerpoint presentations and in presenting research findings.
