Welcome to child and adolescent psychiatry

Ajit Jetmalani

Meet Dr. Ajit 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 is highly involved in medical education for medical students, residents and fellows.  Our teaching draws upon the many multi-disciplinary educational resources of OHSU and diverse health care environments in the community. Our Division is also home to OHSU’s Child and Adolescent Psychiatry fellowship. Click here to learn more about our fellowship program.
