We are grateful for funding and ongoing support from the NIMH (R25MH101076-02S1 and R25MH086466-07S1), AADPRT, the Society of Biological Psychiatry, and the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology.
The overarching aim of the NNCI is to create, pilot, and disseminate a comprehensive set of shared resources that will help train psychiatrists to integrate a modern neuroscience perspective into every facet of their clinical work. This collection reflects the collaboration of diverse residency training programs from across the country. The curriculum is built on principles of adult learning and is adaptable for use in a range of learning environments. The curriculum will be adapted from curricula already implemented in several residency programs and over time will be augmented with best practices collected from institutions and programs across the US and Internationally.
The overarching goal is that residents will incorporate a modern neuroscience perspective as a core component of every formulation and treatment plan and bring the bench to the bedside.
Additional learning objectives—reflecting relevant knowledge, skills, and attitudes—include:
