The PG-III year consists of an integrated 12 months of training in both research and outpatient psychiatry, mostly with adult patients, but also including a long-term psychodynamically-focused child case. Residents have two days 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.
