The UCSD Fellowship in Biological Psychiatry and Neuroscience is an NIMH-funded training program for research-oriented psychiatrists, psychologists, and basic neuroscientists working in areas relevant to psychiatry. Typically Fellows spend two years in the program, during which they develop a research project under the close supervision of one of the highly productive members of the UCSD Department of Psychiatry, or another investigator in the La Jolla (UCSD/ Salk/Scripps) research community. The progress of the research program is monitored by the Fellow’s research advisor, and by feedback from members of the Fellowship Advisory Committee, who review the research projects in a format based on NIH peer review. In addition to the trainee’s primary project, Fellows participate in a wide range of educational activities, ranging from academic areas such as research ethics and statistical methods to practical subjects such as grant writing, structuring and practicing research presentations, and the peer review of manuscripts.
