Training a New Generation of Psychiatrists at NYU
MindMed is funding the launch of a clinical training program at NYU Langone Health that aims to facilitate the recruitment and training of more psychiatrists and clinical investigators in delivering psychedelic assisted therapies and psychedelic inspired medicines. In preparation for future deployment of these medicines, it is imperative to get psychedelic substances in front of clinical researchers and give them the resources they need to help clarify the path forward.
The NYU Langone Health Psychedelic Medicine Research Training Program will provide support, training, mentorship, and research funding necessary and will be managed by Principal Investigator Michael Bogenschutz, M.D., an expert in clinical trials research and the primary investigator leading the effort for approval of psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy for Alcohol Use Disorder by the FDA. The program will be directed by Stephen Ross, M.D., a world leader in advancing research on psychedelic medicine and a prominent addiction psychiatrist.
