Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship
The Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship is a two-year program with two fellowship positions each year. The fellowship trains child and adolescent psychiatrists to meet the needs of youth and families.
It is an exciting time in the field of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and The Ohio State University. In the past several years, we have tripled our psychiatric faculty and are expanding the depth and breadth of services we offer. The division includes more than 200 therapists and 80 psychologists, as well as specifically trained nursing staff.
The Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship is a two-year program with two fellowship positions each year. Upon successful completion of the program, fellows will have met the training requirements for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry certification by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
We are a traditional academic institution, as well as an organization that is committed to providing services directly to the community surrounding us. Drawing from our 37 nearby counties and neighboring states, with 20,000 outpatient psychiatry visits annually, a bustling emergency program with 3,000 visits a year, and a new 16-bed inpatient unit, our fellows see a diverse set of patients and families. Additionally, exciting topics of research include studies on the impact of SSRIs on bone density, fish oil use in children with mood disorders, vitamin D supplementation in children with asthma, and suicide prevention.
The Division of Behavioral Health at Nationwide Children’s Hospital is the largest of its kind at a pediatric institution in the United States. The Ohio State University is one of the oldest Child and Adolescent programs in the country. With long-standing tradition combined with exciting growth, this is a program that trains child and adolescent psychiatrists to meet the needs of youth and families.
We will begin accepting applications in July 2018 for the 2019 academic year.
