The Department of Psychiatry values scholarly work and research as the foundation for improving the quality of clinical care and considers them essential for determining the efficacy of methods of care and for disseminating these methods to the larger professional community. Throughout the training year, Fellows are encouraged to pursue scholarly work and research interests and will be supported in their endeavors.

Fellows will be expected to produce some scholarly activity. This could take the form of a major presentation, written paper or research project. Our mentoring system has successfully supported Fellows applying for research awards, Livingston and DuPont-Warren Fellowships from Harvard Medical School, and American Psychiatric Association/NIMH Research Training Grants. Cross-fertilization between psychiatry and psychology faculty at Harvard has widened the scope of resources and choices.
