Physician Scientist Training in Substance Abuse Research
Rounsaville, Bruce; Yale University
The Physician Scientist Training Program in the The Substance Abuse Division of the Department of Psychiatry at Yale University School of Medicine has been providing intensive training in research methods for clinical and preclinical investigations on drug abuse. With over 30 externally funded research projects, the central theme of the research program is the development and evaluation of innovative pharmacological and behavioral treatments for substance abusers. This multidisciplinary program enables the conduct of research that moves rapidly and in both directions from preclinical projects ("bench") to clinical studies ("bedside"). The training goal for this program is to provide physician scientists at the junior faculty level with an opportunity to devote virtually full-time effort during the initial phase of their careers to learning research skills and conducting research projects as a start to careers as independent clinician scientists. After initial work conducted with the support of this program, they will be guided to develop scientifically meritorious research proposals which will provide support for research that extends beyond the period of this program.
