There is a clear need for basic and clinical researchers and educated research consumers in child psychiatry. Few who enter the field consider research a part of their ride. While some specialized training has occurred, there is a dearth of models for integrating the research process into a traditional child psychiatry fellowship. This paper describes a well-developed model, tested for three years, for feasibly involving research into an ongoing clinical fellowship. The program has already led to conference presentations, research papers, and continued study.
