child adolescent psychiatry: Research


Child & Adolescent Psychiatry



JPS Health Network has a long tradition of residency training and resident participation in scholarly activities, and will now include our child & adolescent fellows who will then be able to participate in JPS Research Day & AACAP conference in their second year. The JPS Behavioral Health Service Research Division is currently participating as a site in six national and international multi-site clinical research trials and has numerous secondary data analysis projects as well. The division is also part of the Texas Child Mental Health Care Consortium along with 13 other medical centers across Texas, participating in two studies - the ‘Youth Depression and Suicide Research Network’ and the ‘Childhood Trauma Research Network’ under that umbrella. Additionally, fellows will receive time in their schedule to prepare for research/scholarly activities, along with research seminars to help navigate, guide, and prepare. Fellows are required to engage in scholarly activity and provide a research product of presentation-ready or publishable quality as a prerequisite to graduation. This may take the form of conference presentations, case reports, original peer-reviewed journal articles, or other scholarly activity as approved by the Program Director and Associate Program Director.

Regularly scheduled scholarly activities include:

  • Journal Club
  • Grand Rounds Lecture Series
  • Research Didactics presentations
  • Participation in local, regional and national meetings
  • CPAN CME presentation
