Welcome to the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Training Program at the University of Arizona College of Medicine. Our program is committed to training individuals who are dedicated, self-motivated, and excited to provide care to children, adolescents, and their families.
Our mission is to train residents to become outstanding child and adolescent psychiatrists who will provide compassionate, ethical and evidence-based care for children, adolescents and their families. During their training, residents in our program are educated broadly in the areas of neuroscience, human development, psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, and foundational health principles such as nutrition, exercise, stress reduction, relationships, sleep, habits and spirituality. We believe in an evidence-based integrated approach to care, with holistic evaluation and intervention, founded in an informed understanding of everyone’s unique context including biological, psychological, social, cultural and spiritual influences.
