Objective: The United States is facing a severe shortage of academic child and adolescent psychiatrists. This article reviews a model integrated pathway to improve recruitment. Methods: The authors review training portals for research in child and adolescent psychiatry. There is a summary of a focus group discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of the Integrated Research Pathway in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (IRPCAP). Results: The University of Colorado and Yale University have initiated integrated pathways. These pathways integrate research into a 5 or 6-year residency to train the next generation of physician-scientists. Conclusion: The innovative Integrated Research Pathway in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry training model has enhanced recruitment of talented physician-scientists. Challenges include long-term financial viability and incorporating all training requirements. Novel pilot models of training are encouraged.
