The School is aimed at clinical trainees (FY1-ST4) interested in an introduction to cutting-edge research relevant to psychiatric disorders. The topics to be introduced include epidemiology, clinical trials, neuroimaging, molecular biology, stem cell research and genetics.
Via lectures, workshops and informal discussion, participants will gain an appreciation of a range of exciting approaches to mental health research and the opportunities available to pursue a career in academic psychiatry. Participation is limited to 50 attendees, and places will be allocated competitively. If you are successfully awarded a place, there will be no attendance fee and required accommodation will also be paid for, as a result of generous funding from the MRF and MRC.
