Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship


Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Fellows

The Department of Psychiatry offers residency training in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry for selected residents who have completed at least the PGY-3 year of training.


We are ACGME approved for eight positions, and we are accredited for five years through 2015.


Our program prepares fellows according to guidelines recommended by the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP) and by the Committee on Child and Adolescent Psychiatry of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN).


The training includes normal and abnormal child development with didactic seminars on cognitive, psychodynamic, social, and biological treatment approaches, including anatomical and biochemical studies.


Supervised observations of normal children of all ages from birth through high school are provided.


Clinical experiences are arranged with children and adolescents from developmental disorders and central nervous system disorders to those with depression and anxiety. Both Child Psychiatry and Pediatric Neurology faculty provide supervision with input from Clinical Child Psychologists, speech pathologists, psychiatric nurses and a multitude of other professionals.


Building on the resources of the Department of Psychiatry, the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (DCAP) offers a diverse faculty, a comprehensive didactic curriculum, and modern inpatient and outpatient clinical facilities. Our program produces graduates who are clinically astute, academically well-rounded, with strong professional values and ready to assume successful leadership roles in the field.
