Research Track

Overview of the Research Track

The OHSU Department of Psychiatry is proud to support the Research Track as a form of professional development for selected members of the Adult Psychiatry Residency Program. The Research Track aspires to balance the demands of exceptional clinical training in adult psychiatry, with the opportunity to promote development of physician-scientists committed to enhancing the care of patients with mental illnesses.

Our mission is to promote the development of psychiatrists who are passionate about pursuing careers in mental health research.

Research Track residents are nurtured in a collaborative, "non-toxic" academic environment at OHSU. They benefit from mentorship from a growing cadre of distinguished psychiatric researchers and the world-class quality of life in Portland and its surrounding vicinity. In addition, the small size of our Research Track ensures individualized attention and adequate institutional resources to support our residents.
