Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship

The Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship at the University of Washington is an ACGME-accredited, two-year program based at Seattle Children's Hospital, one of the top-ranked pediatric hospitals in the country. The Fellowship is the only child and adolescent psychiatry training program in the entire WWAMI (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, Idaho) region.
The program aspires to train tomorrow’s leaders in provision of the most effective care, in development of optimal health care delivery, and in research. Training adheres to the best evidenced-based practices delivered in a compassionate and humanistic manner.
Residents can choose from a broad array of training sites in inpatient, outpatient, long-term residential, juvenile justice, primary care, and school-based consultation environments. Each site provides care to children and adolescents with diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds who have a wide range of disorders. A number of opportunities for training reach out into the WWAMI region, including rotations at distant sites such as Anchorage, Alaska, a regional Autism Center, and Telemedicine services to several states.
Residents receive supervision and mentoring from a large and diverse group of over 30 full-time faculty members, with a range of interests and expertise in many areas. These include autism, ADHD, mood disorders, disruptive behaviors, early onset psychosis, substance use disorders, telepsychiatry, cultural psychiatry, and collaborative care with primary care physicians. Faculty members lead weekly lectures and seminars as part of the didactic program included in the residency.
