Fellowships in Psychiatry

We are proud of our osteopathic heritage, which emphasizes a unique quality of holistic care and trains exemplary and empathic psychiatrists. Our fellowship programs in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Geriatrics Psychiatry value hands-on interprofessional education, mentorship, research, and clinical care.


Our two-year fellowship program provides osteopathic physicians with education and training in the diagnosis, etiology, treatment, and prevention of psychiatric disorders in children and adolescents, as well as in behavioral aspects of common neurological and medical disorders related to children and adolescents. Fellows in our program are also encouraged to conduct original research and benefit from individual faculty mentorships and dedicated research time.

Training takes place on the inpatient Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Unit (CAPU), as well as in a variety of ambulatory and community settings. In addition, our fellows gain experience as consultants to pediatrics, child protective services, the court system, and the schools. There is also a required rotation in the developmental disabilities and an additional rotation available in child physical and sexual abuse services.

Fellows who complete the program are qualified to practice Child and Adolescent Psychiatry in a variety of settings, and are qualified to sit for the certification examination in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry given by the American Osteopathic Board of Neurology and Psychiatry.
