Fellows will rotate and train at multiple locations including St. Louis Children’s Hospital, McCallum Place Eating Disorders Treatment Center, Hawthorn Children’s Psychiatric Hospital, and the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Clinic.

At St. Louis Children’s Hospital, fellows work in an acute inpatient unit, emergency room, and consult on the medical floors. McCallum Place is a premier Midwestern eating disorders treatment center where fellows are supervised by three outstanding child psychiatrists with expertise in eating disorders including anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, and obesity. Hawthorn Children’s Psychiatric Hospital is a state-supported facility where lengths of stay average four to six weeks, allowing the fellows to follow patients through extended courses of treatment.


The second year prioritizes independence and flexibility.

Fellows experience an acceleration in outpatient work, autonomy, and therapeutic practice while rotating on school consultation, pediatric neurology, infant and preschool clinic, substance use disorders, outpatient community mental health, psychotherapy, and built-in administration time.


Fellows take home calls at St. Louis Children’s Hospital to learn emergency evaluation and management skills that are very useful and will make our graduates comfortable with any patient psychiatric emergency. Calls are geared towards this learning objective and not toward service to the hospital.

  • HOME calls end at 10:00 pm and there is never a requirement to work at the hospital overnight.
  • First and Second-year fellows take calls one evening per week (on average).
