Research-Focused Didactic Curriculum

All RTP residents also have dedicated time to participate in an individualized research-focused didactic curriculum. These seminars and courses provide a conceptual framework for research, stimulate new research ideas, and fill knowledge gaps. Topics include translational neuroscience, clinical treatment research, research methodology, ethics, statistics, grant writing, and professional development skills. Senior researchers lead most of the seminars/courses. Some didactics (such as grant writing and ethics) are required and provide fundamental knowledge important to all RTP residents. Other didactics can be tailored to each trainee's research focus, stage of training, and unique educational needs.
