Academic life at the Douglas
Annual Research Day of the Douglas Hospital Research Centre and McGill Department of Psychiatry
This flagship event of Douglas academic life takes place in the spring and highlights the research contributions of students and postdocs of the Douglas Institute Research Centre and McGill Department of Psychiatry.
This full-day event includes a series of oral presentations, a poster session, a data blitz, a keynote lecture, prizes for the best oral and poster presentations, and a wine & cheese cocktail to celebrate the awardees.
This fun, informal event takes place a few times per year, and showcases the research of trainees at the Douglas Hospital Research Center. Short oral presentations by trainees are followed by a relaxed, panel style question and answer period.
Undergraduate Research Expo
This scientific event occurs at the end of the summer, and provides undergraduate students training at the Douglas the opportunity to present their research findings. This "Expo" includes posters presented by the students, with prizes awarded for the best presentations. Graduate students and postdocs also have the opportunity to act as judges in this event.
Hendlisz Award event
The Leo and Rachel Hendlisz Awards are given to the Douglas trainees who have published the best research articles over the past year. The awarding process is through peer-review, with a panel of graduate students and postdocs reviewing, discussing and ranking the applications. During an event held in December, the top nominees present a short talk, and the awards are then announced.

Douglas Clinical Observership Program
The Clinical Observership Program is designed to familiarize research students with clinical practice. Some trainees, even if their graduate or postdoc research deals with mental illness, may have no opportunities to witness psychiatric pathology and how it is treated in the clinic. This observership program fills this gap. Participating students observe Douglas Hospital psychiatrists in their practice in one of the clinics of the hospital. Each observership placement involves one half-day of observership weekly, for 4 consecutive weeks.
