Training Program


From the beginning of residency, the NRTP promotes the integrated and parallel pursuit of clinical and research interests. This approach models a typical academic career, where research, clinical, and educational endeavors are pursued in concert. Dovetailing clinical and research missions fosters an integrated identity as a physician-scientist and promotes translational thinking about investigational approaches to psychiatric illness.



In the first half of the residency training, NRTP residents focus on clinical training, finding a mentor and defining their scientific interests. There are 3 continuous months of protected research time in the PGY II year, as well as 3 months of service on an inpatient psychiatry research unit, one of the few of its kind in academia.

Post Graduate Year I

The intern year consists of 6 months of internal medicine, 2 months of neurology, 1 month of child and adolescent psychiatry, and 3 months of adult inpatient psychiatry. Didactics are provided by each clinical service. During the first year, residents attend the NRTP Seminar, and begin to identify their research interests and mentor.
