Child & Adolescent Psychiatry

We commit to the people of Oregon to deliver high quality, compassionate, cost effective, and respectful service in a collaborative environment that promotes education, research, and clinical leadership.

Welcome to Child & Adolescent Psychiatry

Meet Dr. Jetmalani  and hear why Child & Adolescent Psychiatry is so important at OHSU.

The Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry exemplifies the three-part mission of OHSU: Healing, Teaching and Discovery.


The Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Outpatient Clinic located on the seventh floor of Doernbecher Children's Hospital provides care and consultation for the full range of childhood mental health disorders.


The Division's Training Program draws upon the many multi-disciplinary educational resources of OHSU and diverse health care environments in the community to prepare medical students, general psychiatry residents, and fellows in child and adolescent psychiatry for private and/or group practice.
