Four department trainees have been selected to present their scholarship and research at Department of Psychiatry Grand Rounds events later this year as part of a series designed to highlight the work of senior trainees (e.g., residents, child psychiatry fellows, psychology trainees, postdoctoral fellows) at or near the end of their training and help launch their academic careers. Special Grand Rounds sessions in March and April will each feature formal presentations from two of the selected trainees, followed by a period for questions and discussion with audience members.

Congratulations to the trainees below, who will present their research abstracts on the following dates:

Now in its third year, the Trainee Research Award annually selects trainees conducting notable and advanced research through a competitive application process. In addition to presenting their scholarship and research at Grand Rounds events, the recipients will receive additional mentorship and guidance from faculty, the opportunity to discuss their work with department leadership, and special recognition at graduation.
