CHAMMP is currently accepting applications for the 2013-2014 academic year. This NIMH-funded (T-32) two-year postdoctoral research training program at Harborview Medical Center (Seattle, WA) aims to increase the number of early career investigators (MDs, PhDs, and MD/PhDs) trained in mental health and addictions services research with a safety net medical setting focus. The specific aims of this training program are to:
- Train fellows in the theories and methods of mental health services research, focusing on interventions for disadvantaged populations seen in safety net medical settings, through courses, seminars, and mentored exposure to research in progress.
- Provide fellows with mentored research experiences that incorporate the perspective of safety net patients, providers and administrators so that interventions can be adapted and translated to fit the unique safety net ecology.
- Offer fellows administrative, policy, and clinical training opportunities in safety net facilities that underscore the organizational, financial, and policy barriers to delivering care as well as the challenges to disseminating, implementing, and sustaining new health care strategies.
- Foster communication between fellows and faculty trained in different theoretical and methodological approaches, and stimulate interdisciplinary, iterative collaborations in mental health services research that improve care in safety net settings.
