TRAINING

The goal of the Division of Geriatric Psychiatry Training Program is to train fellows and junior faculty members in those skills necessary for the conception, planning, and conduct of research in geriatric mental health and subsequent presentation and publication of results in a scientific forum followed by successful grant writing on the way to becoming independent investigators.

We also hope to continue to develop academic clinicians adept at assessment and management of psychiatric disorders in older adults in a multidisciplinary setting, and with an understanding of how these behavioral changes interact with underlying neurologic and other medical illnesses, as well as with concomitant adult developmental and social changes. 

The Division of Geriatric Psychiatry is proud of its training record. It has included a number of established investigators in the areas chosen for research, and thereby provided numerous opportunities for mentorship and career development for new and mid-level investigators. We have facilitated innovative and interdisciplinary training, education, career development, and research apprenticeships. We have obtained direct support of training efforts (e.g., stipends) through NIMH and other training and career development mechanisms.

The Division sponsors and oversees several formal and informal programs for training researchers and clinicians in geriatric psychiatry, and each has been quite successful in meeting its objectives. The formal programs include:
