The Research Training Program in Child/Adolescent Biobehavioral HIV prepares post-residency psychiatrists, post-doctoral psychologists, and behavioral scientists to conduct independent research in the area of child/adolescent biobehavioral HIV as full-time University faculty members. The Program is a two-year fellowship in which research fellows train under the guidance of experienced mentors. It includes didactic work, participation in ongoing funded projects, and independent research.
A central characteristic of the Program is its integration of biological and behavioral components to inform HIV research. Trainees receive dual mentorship both from a faculty in the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior and a faculty in the Center for AIDS Research. Projects may involve infected, affected or at-risk youth in behavioral or biologic research. Ongoing funded projects target youth in diverse settings (mental health treatment, public schools, the RI Family court, detention facilities, and community-based recreational programs), investigate novel interventions (family-based, affect management, and media) and include biological markers (HIV and other STIs, viral load, immune functioning and stress reactivity). Clinical experiences in pediatric psychology are also available for appropriate trainees.
Research trainees select an established mentor whose area of research matches well with their own.
