  • Graduate Program

    The Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior initiated the organization of the Graduate Program in Neuroscience in 2007. The Program in Neuroscience (PIN - is an interdepartmental collaborative PhD training program that includes 42 faculty members from 15 departments across the UMMC campus and is directed by Dr. Ian A. Paul, professor of Psychiatry and Human Behavior. 


    The PIN receives administrative support from the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior and the Center for Psychiatric Neuroscience as well as generous stipend support from the School of Graduate Studies in the Health Sciences and currently trains 10 PhD and one MD/PhD students.

    All of the faculty in the DNBR, along with faculty in the Division of Psychology, participate in the PIN teaching and research training. In addition, psychiatry residents have the unique opportunity to participate in basic/clinical research activities of the PIN and DNBR as a part of a research elective in the Residency Training Program.
