Research Track

The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is a leader in research and the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Department is proud to be advancing the field. In addition to the main program, we also offer a research track designed for fellows interested in honing their research skills during training.

Fellows in this track rotate through the core Year 1 rotations of inpatient, Comprehensive Adolescent Rehabilitation and Education Service, Consultation-Liaison, and the Development and Scholarly Block. In addition, first year trainees in this track are afforded protected time for research. We will also offer you the flexibility to have your outpatient clinic at the site of your research.

In Year 2, you will have further time dedicated to research along with a general outpatient caseload. Research track fellows still choose a subspecialty, and we help connect you with a mentor in your chosen research area. You will complete a scholarly activity by graduation and will have the opportunity to present your findings at Grand Rounds. Please note this program uses a separate National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) number from our general fellowship and is a separate match. We recommend residents interested in this track apply to the general fellowship as well. Those applying to both will only need one interview.

The research track NRMP number is 1490405F1.
