Psychiatry Research Fellowships, American Psychiatric Institute for Research and Education (APIRE)
The annual application deadline for research fellows is December 1 and for summer medical students is April 1.

Announcement of fellowships, specifically for ethnic minority psychiatrists who have completed their psychiatry residency and are searching for research fellowship opportunities.

  1. The Program for Minority Research Training in Psychiatry (PMRTP) is funded by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). Through it, the American Psychiatric Institute of Research and Education (APIRE) sponsors training of minority medical students, psychiatric residents, and fellows who are interested in research by providing advice, placement assistance, tuition, stipends, travel and other expenses. The annual application deadline for research fellows is December 1 and for summer medical students is April 1. The director of the program is Darrel A. Regier, M.D., M.P.H.; the project manager is Ernesto A. Guerra.

    For more information, call the toll-free number for the PMRTP, 1-800-852-1390, or 703-907-8622, e-mail eguerra@psych.org, or write to PMRTP at the American Psychiatric Institute for Research and Education; 1000 Wilson Blvd, Ste. 1825; Arlington, VA 22209-3901.

  2. Through its National Institute of Mental Health-funded Program for Minority Research Training in Psychiatry (PMRTP), the American Psychiatric Institute for Research and Education (APIRE) is seeking to increase the number of minority psychiatrists going into psychiatric research.

    The program provides medical students and psychiatric residents with funding for stipends, travel expenses, and tuition for an elective or summer experience in a research environment. Stipends are also available for one- or two-year postresidency fellowships for minority psychiatrists. Deadlines for applications are December 1 for residents seeking a year or more of training and for postresidency fellows; or three months before training is to begin for medical students. Summer medical students who will start their training by June 30 should submit their applications by April 1.

    Training takes place at research-oriented departments of psychiatry in major U.S. medical schools and other appropriate sites nationwide. An individual at the site (the research "mentor") oversees the research training experience.

    The PMRTP is administered by the American Psychiatric Institute for Research and Education (APIRE). The director of the program is Darrel A. Regier, M.D., M.P.H.; the project manager is Ernesto A. Guerra. An advisory committee of senior researchers and minority psychiatrists developed guidelines for applicants and criteria for selection. The members of this committee evaluate and select trainees.

    For more information, call the toll-free number for the PMRTP, 1-800-852-1390, or 703-907-8622, e-mail eguerra@psych.org, or write to PMRTP at the American Psychiatric Institute for Research and Education; 1000 Wilson Blvd, Ste. 1825; Arlington, VA 22209-3901.

  3. Through a five-year, $3.6 million grant from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), the American Psychiatric Institute for Research and Education (APIRE) is seeking through the Program for Minority Research Training in Psychiatry (PMRTP) to increase the number of minority psychiatrists entering the field of psychiatric research.

    The program provides medical students with funding for stipends, travel expenses, and tuition for an elective or summer experience in a research environment, with special attention paid to trainees' career development in research. In addition, stipends are available for a limited number of one-or two-year postresidency fellowships for minority psychiatrists. Residents may engage in full-year research training during the last year of psychiatric residency or in "year off" research training.

    Training takes place at research-oriented departments of psychiatry in major U.S. medical schools and other appropriate sites throughout the country. An individual at the site (the research "mentor") is responsible for overseeing the research training experience.

    Administered by the American Psychiatric Institute for Research and Education (APIRE), the program includes outreach efforts to identify minority medical students and residents who are potential researchers and to put them in touch with advisors who counsel them about careers in psychiatric research. Additional activities assist fellows and alumni in their research career development.

    The director of the PMRTP is Darrel A. Regier, M.D., M.P.H.; the project manager is Ernesto A. Guerra. An advisory committee of senior researchers and minority psychiatrists developed guidelines for applicants and criteria for selection. The members of this committee evaluate and select trainees, oversee the research training experiences, and play a role in evaluating the effectiveness of the program.

    December 1 is the deadline for applications for residents seeking a year or more of training and for postresidency fellows. For medical students, applications are due three months before training is to begin. Summer medical students who will start their training by June 30 should submit their applications by April 1.

    For more information, call the toll-free number for the PMRTP, 1-800-852-1390, or 703-907-8622, e-mail eguerra@psych.org, or write to PMRTP at the American Psychiatric Institute for Research and Education; 1000 Wilson Blvd, Ste. 1825; Arlington, VA 22209-3901.
