Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
In the training of current and future physicians, we strive for excellence in the practice of child and adolescent psychiatry. Our goal is to develop skilled and compassionate child and adolescent psychiatrists through our fellowship program. The program is academically based and designed to provide a well-balanced educational training experience that fulfills the special requirements established by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
In February 2011, we received full accreditation form ACGME with the maximum accreditation cycle of five years, and a written commendation for the program "for its demonstrated substantial compliance with the ACGME's requirements for Graduate Medical Education." We are committed to top quality fellowship education that prepares our graduates for careers in clinical care and as academic child and adolescent psychiatric faculty. We combine top quality clinical care, strong teaching, opportunities for clinical research, and faculty mentorship in a collegial training environment that will nurture intellectual curiosity, support personal professional growth, and prepare our fellows for a successful professional career.
Experienced leadership, over a quarter century of fellowship training experience, a relevant up to date formal curriculum, and highest quality clinical training rotations, coupled with a dedication from the department, the hospital, our training affiliates, and the medical school all contribute to a top-notch training experience. We strive to select the best applicants from a national pool, including the general psychiatry residents from our own department.
