The Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship curriculum provides comprehensive clinical training experiences in acute inpatient psychiatry, consultation-liaison, partial hospitalization, emergency services, community mental health and specialized outpatient clinics. There are robust opportunities to develop skills in teaching, systems-based improvement, research, collaboration across disciplines, and public and global health initiatives. Fellows trained at IU School of Medicine leave prepared to work as leaders in a full spectrum of roles in private, academic, research and community settings.
The typical schedule starts with acute psychiatry services, including inpatient, consultation-liaison, partial hospitalization program and exposure to the emergency department’s behavioral health assessment center. Most of the acute service rotations occur in Indiana’s only free standing, tertiary-care children’s hospital, Riley Hospital for Children. The remainder of the time is focused on outpatient general and specialty clinics, psychotherapy (CBT, psychodynamic, family, and group), and electives.
