Fellowship Program

The OHSU residency in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is an ACGME fully accredited two-year fellowship in child psychiatry. Graduates of this program are qualified to be examined by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) for subspecialty certification in child psychiatry. Residents receive close supervision in a broad range of clinical experiences with varied populations. These include rotations with severely disturbed children and adolescents at Providence Medical Center and the Christie School: with physically and psychophysiologically ill children on the Pediatric Consultation/Liaison Service at Doernbecher Children's Hospital; with developmentally disabled children at the CDRC and Center for Continuous Improvement with seriously emotionally disturbed preschool-aged children at the Lifeworks NW Children's Psychiatric Day Treatment Center; and with juvenile offenders at the MacLaren Correctional Facility. Continuous outpatient experience with a diverse patient population presenting the full array of childhood psychopathology is provided in the OHSU Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Outpatient Clinic located in Doernbecher Children's Hospital. Residents also participate in community consultation rotations in both years.

These clinical experiences are accompanied by didactics, interviewing and psychotherapy instruction. Trainees are also offered opportunities to participate in research. Applicants are encouraged to identify this interest so that interviews with child psychiatry faculty can be arranged.
