  • Thomas Schwartz, MD
    Professor
    Research Interests:

    One aspect of academic psychiatry and teaching is to cultivate medical students and residents and to steer them towards understanding and conducting clinical research.  In the Department of Psychiatry, Dr. Schwartz and his colleagues James Megna, M.D., Adekola Alao, M.D., and others, have strong track records of involving students and residents in research.  Students and residents routinely present posters at national meetings and have their work published in reputable journals.  Students and residents learn how to write case histories, case series, create and conduct surveys, analyze datasets collected by faculty, and occasionally conduct prospective trials.  We feel these fundamental research experiences are the gateway to launching careers in more in-depth and formal clinical research for our students and residents.  Fortunately, these research experiences can be developed for a fraction of the cost of starting a new research project, but nevertheless funding for such experiences cannot be easily obtained from typical funding streams, such as the U.S. National Institutes of Health.
