The UCSF Psychiatry Research Resident Training Program (RRTP) provides a comprehensive program to support and nurture psychiatry residents interested in pursuing careers in mental health research.
Our mission is to promote the entry of psychiatry residents into ongoing careers in mental health research, including clinical, translational, and basic science research. We accomplish this through proactive and collaborative mentorship and targeted research support. Our program includes career mentoring, protected time for research activities, research pilot funding, individualized training opportunities and more.
Training the next generation of mental health researchers
We strive to foster the continuing research careers of psychiatry residents who already have substantial previous backgrounds in research (e.g., MDs, PhDs). We also place a specific focus on identifying child psychiatry residents interested in pursuing a research career and fostering their career development.
We continue to support the career development of UCSF RRTP residents post-residency, providing assistance with postdoctoral fellowships, mentored career awards, and much more.
