Department of Psychiatry Research Day

View the 2021 DPRD award winners!

The Department of Psychiatry Research Day is the major research conference for the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto. The event fosters collegiality amongst our Department's members and allows researchers to present a synopsis of their current work to one another, to the Toronto psychiatric community, and to the public.

Every Division of our academic community is represented at Research Day through oral presentations, poster sessions, and other interactive discussion sessions. While some of our most senior researchers present, the primary focus of Research Day is to foster the next generation of researchers, and on the promotion of our junior faculty members and developing scientists.

The Department of Psychiatry Research Day is accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada:

  • Royal College Maintenance of Certification Section 1: 3.5 hours
  • Royal College "Section 2" (self-learning) for participating in the poster viewing during lunch (0.5 credits per poster)
