Our mission is to help fellows become first-rate child and adolescent psychiatrists who dedicate their careers as leaders in this field.


Courses, seminars, and conferences

The principal didactics during the two year fellowship are broken into units:

  • Psychotherapy
  • Diversity Equity and Inclusion
  • Practice of Medicine
  • Advanced Psychiatry
  • Reading the Literature
  • Neuroscience
  • Patient Safety and Quality Improvement
  • Practice of Medicine
  • Clinical Pearls

First-year fellows have a summer initial introductory series (NUTS AND BOLTS) on key topics and second-year fellows have a weekly leadership seminar. Throughout both years, most rotations have weekly conferences.

Also available are several weekly departmental seminars such as Grand Rounds, Research Rounds, Advanced Resident Seminars, and conferences on ​developmental neuroimaging, genetics, and epidemiology.

Faculty interaction

In addition to supervision from the rotation director and faculty attendings, each resident has at least two hours weekly of supervision including one hour ​dedicated to discussing fellows’ well-being including work-life balance, interpersonal communication, the secondary trauma of our work, and conversations around ongoing stressors.

Tracking your progress

Evaluations are completed after each rotation by the rotation director and then yearly by supervisors. The training directors gather this information and provide feedback to each trainee twice a year. In addition, trainees take the Psychiatry Resident-In-Training Examination (PRITE) for adults and children. Each trainee also self-assesses their progress on the CAP Milestones every six months.
