In the two-year postdoctoral program, fellows are matched with faculty members who provide mentorship across an array of approaches and methods, including neuroimaging, genetics, developmental longitudinal perspectives, treatment evaluation, and dissemination and implementation research that encompasses the range of major child and adolescent psychiatric disorders. In addition, fellow have the opportunity to participate in the Career and Research Development Seminar (CARDS) series, and receive resources for travel, coursework, and pilot research.
IMPACT’s predoctoral summer program is an eight-week research elective that pairs medical students with a mentor from our training faculty whose work complements the student’s research interests.
