Physician-Scientist Training Program
The UNC Department of Psychiatry has a rich tradition of integrating clinical care with clinical, translational, global public health, health services, and basic neuroscience research. With nearly $22 million in external research funding ($17.9M from NIH FY2020), UNC Psychiatry currently ranks in the top 5 for NIH Research funding among departments within UNC School of Medicine, and 19th for Departments of Psychiatry across the United States. UNC’s basic science departments are nationally ranked and committed to working with physicians. Further, the Gillings School of Global Public Health at UNC is the 2nd ranked school of public health in the nation and a fertile source of mentors for Physician-Scientist trainees pursuing high impact epidemiology research.
Indeed, physician-scientists in the Department have thrived in a collegial environment that supports multidisciplinary research both within the Department and across the many UNC Departments, Centers, and Schools they work and collaborate with.
The Physician-Scientist Training Program combines excellent clinical training with intensive mentorship in the conduct of innovative research and provides a solid foundation for an academic research career.
