Welcome to the Thomas Jefferson University Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Training Program

James Luebbert, MD

I'm delighted to learn of your interest in the Fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Thomas Jefferson University.

Our program is based at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and Albert Einstein Medical Center. The fellowship started in 1977, and the most recent renewal of our longstanding full accreditation by the ACGME was February 2011. Our program is affiliated with Jefferson Medical College, one of the oldest and largest medical schools in the country and an institution rich with medical history.

Our primary goal is to develop independent practitioners of child and adolescent psychiatry. Fellows experience patients in a wide range of diagnostic entities, utilize and learn the gamut of therapeutic options in child and adolescent psychiatry, and develop competency in the evaluation and management of inpatient and outpatient psychiatric disorders in all age ranges. Fellows are also actively involved in teaching and there are opportunities for research. Those who have completed our program obtain careers in both academic and clinical environments. Core faculty members include James Luebbert, MD (Program Director), Fayez El-Gabalawi, MD (Associate Director), Jillan Sackett-Cantor, MD, (Curriculum Director), Harris Rabinovich, MD, and Henri Parens, MD,.

I invite you to learn more about our program through this website.
