Psychiatric & Behavioral Genetic Epidemiology Training Program

The goal of the Psychiatric & Behavioral Genetic Epidemiology training program, which is funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, is to train the next generation of investigators in psychiatric epidemiology. The program provides an opportunity for pre-doctoral and post-doctoral students to obtain advanced training in the methodology and application of psychiatric epidemiology to problems of mental and behavioral health. Students interested in the Program Area of Psychiatric and Behavioral Genetic Epidemiology may pursue further specialized training in the genetic epidemiology of these phenotypes. Pre-doctoral trainees must complete the required coursework for their degree program as well as complete all qualifying examinations and a research dissertation under the supervision of their advisor. Post-doctoral fellows are expected to engage in original research under the supervision of a faculty member.
