Training the next generation of clinicians and scientists is at the heart of our mission.  We are seeking bright and creative individuals that will help lead the charge in developing and delivering state-of-the-art brain stimulation treatments.  

 

With the support of the Sidney R. Baer Junior Foundation we are able to offer a world-class training program for fellows interested in practicing medicine and conducting research at the interface of neurology and psychiatry. We will have a special emphasis on training in areas relevant to developing innovative new therapies using brain stimulation, or neuromodulation. We will leverage our state-of-the-art facilities, resources and faculty in these areas to deliver an exceptional training experience for future leaders in the closely related fields of neuropsychiatry and neuromodulation. The University of Iowa Sidney R. Baer, Jr. Fellowship will provide 3 years support to a qualified individual with a background in neurology or psychiatry where the trainee will develop skills in translational neuropsychiatry research that will range from formal coursework, clinical activities, independent research projects, data analysis, manuscript preparation, and grant writing, among others. Fellows will have the opportunity to select a primary research mentor as well as work with a variety of leading scientists and physicians across neurology, psychiatry, and neurosurgery to provide a comprehensive training program. Upon completing the fellowship our trainee will be well equipped to launch a successful academic career as an independent physician scientist in a tenure track position.  Our expectation is to train the future leaders of neuropsychiatry and neuromodulation.
