The Integrative Research Training Fellowship Program

*This competition is restricted to internal, SickKids Research Fellows only.
*Please note that there is a different application process and deadline for Healthcare Professional and Basic Science applicants

Program Overview

The Integrative Research Training Fellowship Program is a strategic initiative of the SickKids Centre for Brain & Mental Health (C-BMH), which provides advanced fellows with a comprehensive research training opportunity in a new discipline that enhances and supplements their prior training and professional background.

Fellows MUST cross brain and/or mental health related disciplines in order to be considered for an Integrative Research Training Fellowship.

Examples include, but are not limited to:

• Neurologist or neurosurgeon training in a psychology lab;

• PhD Social Worker training in psychiatry;

• Neuroscientist training in a brain imaging lab or psychiatry.


Program Goals

To develop a synergy between the applicant’s research goals and the skills and knowledge that can be obtained through the fellowship.

To increase inter-disciplinary and inter-professional capacity (i.e. specialized training and skill growth for already highly skilled professionals) within the Centre for Brain & Mental Health.

To advance innovation in science by bringing together supervisors and trainees from complimentary disciplines to address novel research questions.
