Interdisciplinary Training in Psychiatry and Neuroscience

Fellowship Description:

This an interdisciplinary training program originating in the Department of Psychiatry, with close ties to the Departments of Neuroscience, Radiology and Neurology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. The faculty members have appointments in these departments, and have an established record of collaborative interactions. The research interests of the core faculty represent the major sub-disciplines of the neurosciences and biological psychiatry, including molecular and cellular neurobiology, mouse genetics, developmental neurobiology, systems neurobiology, neuroimaging, clinical psychiatry, psychiatric genetics and neuropsychiatry. The primary vehicle for training is supervised research in a laboratory of one of the core faculty members, combined with an organized didactic program in relevant aspects of research methodology, ethics and career development. The training program provides a unique opportunity for MDs and PhDs to obtain training at the postdoctoral level in a wide range of disciplines oriented toward advancing knowledge in psychiatry.

Fellowship Title:

Psychology and Medicine: An Integrative Research Approach

Fellowship Description:

This postdoctoral research training program provides training in theory-based research on psychological and behavioral factors in the etiology and management of health problems. Fellows will specialize either in cognitive appraisal theories of responses to stressful situations or in cognitive-behavioral models of risk behavior. In both areas fellows will examine the processes by which these factors affect health and disease, and the implication for developing effective interventions. Fellows in both specializations will share core seminars and least one course in the other specialization area.
