The CDI for Psychiatry includes:

  • a comprehensive program of career and skills self-assessment,
  • individualized career goal setting,
  • an expense-paid four-day workshop,
  • structured long-distance career mentoring and goal tracking,
  • webinars (online meetings) and tutorials, and
  • a multi-tiered program evaluation.

The program is geared toward individuals who have just completed research training or are very early in the initial faculty appointment.

Participants in the program have a unique opportunity to work with a diverse group of senior faculty and mentors from the University of Pittsburgh, Stanford University, the National Institute of Mental Health, and CDI alumni.
