Drug Abuse Research Training (DART)

Drug Abus Research Training LogoThe Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) psychiatry residency program offers an NIDA-sponsored research track (R25  DA020537: PIs Back & Brady) for residents committed to pursuing research careers. The program is directed by Dr. Sudie Back, Dr. Sarah Book, Dr. Kelly Barth, and Dr. Kathleen Brady.  

The Resident Research Track can be integrated within any of the three main residency programs and encompasses the last one or two years of residency training.  The goal of the research training program is to increase the number of psychiatrists with the skills to conduct patient-oriented research as independently funded investigators. The program accomplishes its objectives within the same four-year time period required for clinical training and board certification in psychiatry. In addition, the training format qualifies residents for the new NIH Clinical Research Loan Repayment Program initiative.

The DART Program also offers a 10-week Summer Research Fellowship for undergraduate, graduate and medical students.
