Research in Residency

The Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior provides outstanding research training opportunities for our psychiatry residents.  Residents train alongside faculty mentors who conduct cutting-edge research on the causes, mechanisms, and novel treatments for a range of psychiatric conditions. We are known for our collaborative spirit, accessibility, dedication to launching successful research careers, and commitment to diversity and inclusion

Brown is one of a small number of departments in the country with a R25 grant funded by the National Institute of Mental Health. The R25 training goal is to lay the foundation for a successful independent research career through mentored research opportunities and training during residency. The NIMH R25 funding allows for substantial protected research time for selected residents. 

There are also excellent opportunities for residents who are interested in research experiences outside of the R25 through five federally-funded research training fellowships (T32s).
