He has published approximately 390 peer-reviewed publications, books and book chapters and his work has been funded by the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Defense, the Obsessive Compulsive Foundation, and the American Society for Suicide Prevention.

Dr. Schmidt started doing a sprint tris a few years ago and has completed most of the local races (Red
Hills, Tri the Rez, Beach Blast) as well as a half Ironman in New Orleans. Now he is a regular trail runner (to be nice to his hips) and he dreams of one day getting back to training for triathlons.
