EXTENDED DEADLINE: Douglas Mental Health University Institute Clinical Observership Program 2023-2024

Please note: The deadline has been extended until October 13, 2023.

The clinical observership program is designed to acquaint research students with clinical practice, to witness psychiatric pathology and how it is treated. This involves one half day observerships, each week, for 4 consecutive weeks in the same setting. For the 2023-24 program, which will take place from November 2023 to June 2024, each student can participate to a maximum of two observerships. The possible observerships are described in a subsequent page in this survey.

To be eligible to participate in this program, candidates have to be currently registered in a graduate-level program (i.e., Master’s, Doctoral) or be a postdoctoral fellow, and to be presently conducting research under the supervision of a principal investigator of the Douglas Research Centre. Research assistants, research associates and undergraduate students are not eligible.

Please fill in the application form indicating your observership preferences and which months you will be available to participate. We will try to accommodate as many trainees as possible. Since places are limited, if there are too many applications, we will select on a first come first served basis, and based on availabilities of the applicants. It is essential that your supervisor approves your attendance to the program. Applications without your supervisor’s approbation will not be considered. The deadline for application is October 6, 2023.

The deadline has been extended until October 13, 2023.
