Research Track

Master
Content

The Baylor College of Medicine Psychiatry Residency Research Track was developed to facilitate the development of trainees for careers as psychiatric physician-scientists. While continuing to receive premier clinical training from Baylor-affiliated sites alongside other Baylor psychiatric residents, research track residents will be provided significant time for mentored research across all four years of training. Following completion of the Residency Research Track, graduates will be well-positioned for the next stage of their careers, whether it be advanced research fellowship training or a junior faculty position.
