Medical School Research Pipeline: Medical Student Research Experience in Psychiatry
The authors discuss the importance of introducing research training in psychiatry and neurosciences to medical students.
A review of existing models of research training in psychiatry with focus on those providing research training to medical students is presented.
Two research-training models for medical students that are easy to adopt and have possible nationwide applicability are identified, along with other useful research-training models.
Specific recommendations on how to foster research training in psychiatry and neurosciences for medical students throughout the U.S. are presented.
