OHSU Child Psychiatry Continuity Clinic

OHSU Child Psychiatry Consult Clinic

OHSU Consult Liaison

OHSU Institute for Developmental Disabilities/Child Development & Rehabilitation Center (IDD/CDRC): This rotation is designed to help fellows: 1) Accurately diagnose autism spectrum disorders; 2) Appreciate the critical importance of early diagnosis and evidence-based interventions, with fellows gaining an awareness of the implication of false positive and false negative diagnoses; 3) Explore the compounding issues of intellectual disability, speech and language delay, nonverbal learning disorders, and sensory integration problems that present during early childhood and possibly make diagnoses tentative rather than definitive; 4) Understand the importance of a detailed understanding of autism, intellectual disability, and related disorders in order to provide appropriate psychiatric interventions and care

OHSU Pediatric Psychosis Clinic

OHSU Pediatric Consult Clinic

OHSU Pediatric Neurology Clinic: This rotation meets the requirements of the ABPN to become “board-eligible” for certification in child psychiatry and is essential as there is an overlap in the types of conditions which the two specialties, wherein appropriate neurological examination, rule-out of identifiable and treatable neurological/medical etiologies for psychiatric conditions, recognition of how/when to obtain additional studies (including neuropsychological testing, neuroimaging), and when consultation with a pediatric neurological specialists are all necessary to competent child and adolescent psychiatric practice.

OHSU Pediatric Sleep Medicine Clinic: Fellows will participate in the evaluation and management of children with sleep disorders; learn to take a thorough sleep history that screens for sleep disordered breathing, insomnia, parasomnias, circadian rhythm disorders and sleep related movement disorders; understand sleep changes throughout development; become familiar with sleep disorders in normally developing children as well as children with special health needs.

OHSU Systemic Family Therapy clinic: This rotation involves fellows being part of the “reflecting-team” wherein they watch couples and family therapy sessions through a two-way mirror and then reflect, with the rest of the team, on the strengths of the family as well as their analysis of major narratives, structures, and dilemmas facing family. Occasionally this discussion is witnessed by the family and therapists, watching from the other side, helping families develop a “reflective function.”

Trillium Family Services: Trillium’s Psychiatric Residential Treatment Services program (PRTS) offers short-term, on-site psychiatric services for young people requiring 24-hour support for emotional and behavioral challenges We serve children and adolescents, ages 5 – 17 at the Portland campus and 12 – 17 at the Corvallis campus, who are struggling with mental health challenges and are in need of 24-hour residential treatment.
