The Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy of the LMU and the Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry, Munich, receive funding from the Else Kröner-Fresenius Foundation for a residency/PhD training program in the field of psychiatry and neuroscience.

Residency/PhD track

The Residency/PhD track is unique to IMPRS-TP. It combines 3 years of research expertise in one area of basic science to obtain a PhD and 4 years of clinical training and applied research to become licensed in psychiatry and psychotherapy.

Residency/PhD students should apply for this program at the end of their medical studies. Once accepted onto the program, the students start with one year of clinical training, either at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University or the Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry. On completion of the first year, they then continue with a PhD education within the IMPRS-TP.

After obtaining their PhD, students on the Residency/PhD track are offered to continue their residency training, where one year of research counts towards the completion of the clinical training in psychiatry and psychotherapy. This program enables clinical scientists the possibility of obtaining both a PhD and residency training within 7 to 8 years.
