Curriculum

Our core didactic curriculum covers all major topics in child and adolescent psychiatry and incorporates gender, racial, and cultural perspectives.

We hold a child and adolescent psychiatry crash course in July and August for our first year fellows that includes topics such as emergency assessment, de-escalation, and psychopharmacology; psychiatric assessment of infants through adolescence; working in systems of care (pediatric medicine, neurology, school, family, legal, and more); fellows as teachers; and compassion fatigue/wellness resources.
