The Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship is a two year program with positions for four fellows. It is our philosophy to prepare clinicians dedicated to the comprehensive care of mental health disorders in children, adolescents and their families. We prepare trainees who will have the appropriate knowledge and experience in clinical activities, teaching and research to have successful careers in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. This would include careers in a clinical setting or academic setting. Our graduates will satisfy the National Board requirements in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
We generate Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist who are well rounded and competent. Our trainees develop passion for the mental health care of their patients and hold themselves to the highest standard of care. We encourage the development of interest in research and scholarship that will further our understanding of the normal child development, child and adolescent psychopathology and treatment of the mentally ill child and adolescent.
Our fellows are given exposure to multiple conceptual frameworks to provide a broader base to understand human behavior. They are taught orientations including psychodynamic, psychosocial, biological, behavioral and cognitive. This background allows them to provide comprehensive assessment and treatment of their patients and families. The fellows receive training in evaluations, pharmacotherapy, group therapy, cognitive and behavioral therapy, family therapy and other evidenced based treatments.
