Research During Residency

Would you like to get involved in research or a scholarly project during residency? There are great opportunities available for Weill Cornell psychiatry residents! Weill Cornell Medical College's Department of Psychiatry has outstanding faculty members who would be delighted to mentor you. Many are conducting cutting-edge clinical, translational, and/or basic neuroscience research studies, whereas others are involved in scholarly projects that cover a broad range of topics.

I’m thrilled to be taking on a new role as Residency Research Director for the Weill Cornell Psychiatry Residency. In this role I will actively mentor residents who are interested in participating in a research project or another research-related or scholarly activity, such as writing up and publishing data from a mentor’s existing data set or publishing a paper. We will work together alongside and in synergy with the programming through the Clinical Scholars Institute. Scholarly work can be fun, enriching, and rewarding, regardless of your future career goals. If you’re interested, we will discuss your ideas and goals, work together to find you a mentor, and meet in an ongoing way for additional guidance. No prior research experience is required! Residents with prior research training who have decided to pursue a research career are able to devote more substantial time to research and research training during residency, and have several avenues for mentorship and support. Details can be discussed during the residency application process.

I am a researcher, clinician, and educator, and I have truly treasured working with residents over the years (click here for bio). From 2006-2017, I was Director of Research Training for the general psychiatry residency training program at Brown University, and I am delighted to be taking on a similar role at Weill Cornell.

I look forward to hearing from and working with any interested residents; please email me at kap9161@med.cornell.edu.
