December 2020 Update from the Department of Psychiatry Research and Scholarly Activity Committee



Hello again from the Department’s Research and Scholarly Activity Committee!

We’re pleased to provide you with an update on our committee’s work to support residents’ research and scholarly activity endeavours. This committee is responsible for ensuring that our department’s residency program meets Royal College training objectives for research and scholarly activity. Specific responsibilities include the identification, development, enhancement, promotion, monitoring and evaluation of resident scholarly activity projects, and ensuring that objectives relating to research and scholarly activity are integrated throughout our educational program.

The committee meets quarterly, at which time resident submissions of their project abstract submissions and final scholarly activity reports are reviewed. Residents, for your information if you’re submitting either your project abstract or your final report, the next scheduled meetings are on February 2 2021 and April 20 2021.

The committee requires one week in advance of the meeting to conduct a thorough review of all the documents, so the deadlines for submissions for Spring 2021 are:

  • January 26, 2021
  • April 13, 2021

Please know that you can find copies of all relevant documentation relating to scholarly activity on the department website here:

If you have questions or need support relating to scholarly activity please contact Dr. Erin Michalak, Associate Program Director, Scholarly Activity, via or contact your regional committee lead (see below) directly.
