Thank you for your interest in UC Irvine's Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Training Program. Our goal is to prepare our fellows for the plethora of opportunities that will be available to them at the conclusion of their training. To this end, we strive to provide a diverse range of training settings and mentorship while maintaining the camaraderie and collegiality we feel is so vital to the growth of the individual physician.
The supportive environment that we foster here at UC Irvine enables our fellows to complement their developing knowledge base and clinical decision-making skills with a compassionate, humanistic approach. Our program emphasizes training in biological, psychological, and social modalities, as we strongly believe that a multidisciplinary approach is vital to providing excellent psychiatric care to children, adolescents and their families.
Clinical experiences have been developed to provide exposure to the wide variety of psychiatric diagnoses and issues facing children and adolescents, as well as prepare our fellows for the diverse populations they may encounter post-graduation.
Our full-time, part-time and volunteer faculty members are dedicated to the education of our trainees. In turn, we support our fellows in becoming effective educators in their work with residents, medical students, and ancillary staff, as we value teaching as a vital component to professional development.
We offer three fellowship positions per year, for a total of six fellows during the two-year program. Our recent graduates have succeeded in establishing their footprint in various settings, including staying in academia (including at UC Irvine), establishing their own private practice (several choosing to stay in Orange County), working in community hospitals such as Kaiser and completing additional training in forensic psychiatry.
