The training program curriculum includes an 8-week course on the Responsible Conduct of Research, a writing group attended by fellows and faculty members, and attendance at the DPRG Seminars.
The DPRG seminar series has continued on a regular basis since 1970. It has become a focus for many of the group's activities, as well as for stimulating the involvement of developmental investigators from outside our department or the University of Colorado Denver. It serves as a medium for the presentation of ongoing research, critical literature review, and for the presentation of new research methods and findings, as well as in-depth treatment of conceptual issues by members of our group and visiting scientists.
The DPRG holds a biennial 3-day retreat during the latter part of May or early June. Participants include members of the DPRG, as well as several nationally recognized scholars and investigators in the general area of developmental psychobiology. Each retreat addresses a separate topic within the general realm of developmental psychobiology.
Additional coursework is tailored to the needs of the individual trainee, and includes classes at the University of Denver, the University of Colorado School of Medicine, and other institutions.
