Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship

Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship

Our fellowship is a two-year program approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and participates in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) match. We admit seven fellows annually, including as many as three in our research track.

The Mount Sinai Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship prides itself on producing academic leaders who advance the field and are committed to delivering the highest level of compassionate care to patients and their families.

Our program builds on the following five values to give our elite fellows the training you need to graduate as experienced, motivated, caring, and always-curious child psychiatrists: clinical excellence, leadership in academics and research, education, community responsibility, and wellness.

To qualify as a trainee, you must have completed a minimum of three postgraduate years, including at least two years of general psychiatry. In rare cases, if you have completed your PGY-1 year, we may consider your application for admission. (Note: the ACGME permits training in child and adolescent psychiatry prior to general psychiatry; however, to be eligible for the board examination in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, you must first pass the Boards in General Psychiatry).

You must also be licensed in New York State or be eligible for a temporary (trainee) license. If you are an international medical graduate, you must have completed requirements through the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates. If you are not a U.S. citizen, we will need proof of suitable immigration status.

How To Apply:

To apply, please complete the application via Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS):

  • Minimum of three letters of recommendation (including one from the current training director in general psychiatry at your school)
  • Copy of your medical school transcripts
  • Letter from the dean of the medical school you attended

We recommend you complete your application no later than October 1, though we process applications up until the NRMP deadline. We make offers of admission in conjunction with the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Specialty Match, announced in January. You may request consideration outside the match, with the understanding that we follow the rules of the NRMP. These rules limit special applications to the period prior to July 1 of the year before training begins.
