Psychiatry Fellowship Program

The two-year pediatric psychiatry fellowship program provides a diverse experience with the flexibility to tailor to each fellow's career goals. The program provides a clinically rich, detailed experience interspersed with didactics and close supervision in a supportive setting that aims to develop a strong foundation in child and adolescent psychiatry. Fellows will develop understanding of the biological, psychological, social and developmental factors affecting the lives of children, adolescents and their families and learn to assess and treat their patients using the same approach. 

Fellows will complete rotations at Le Bonheur and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Outpatient rotations are offered at the Boling Center for Developmental Disabilities where there is a rich interchange with psychologists, psychology interns and developmental pediatrics.
