Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Program

Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is a Division of the Department of Psychiatry at New Jersey Medical School.   The Division offers a fully accredited, two-year fellowship training program in child and adolescent psychiatry.   Entrance to the program commonly follows completion of the PGY-3 year. The training is designed to provide the fundamental knowledge and skills essential to success in academic and practice settings.    

A biopsychosocial, developmental, multi-system framework provides the foundation for the Division's education and training programs.   It is the goal of the program to foster an integrated understanding and utilization of biologic, individual psychodynamic, family systems, psychopharmacologic, cognitive, behavioral, and community perspectives.   The fellow is exposed to patients of varied psychopathology, ethnicity and socioeconomic backgrounds.   An average of 4 hours per week of on-site individual supervision for each fellow complements the didactic curriculum.     


The Division utilizes the following facilities for training:

•  University Hospital (Newark)

•  Pediatric Consultation-Liaison Service

•  Pediatric Psychiatry Emergency Room

•  University Behavioral Health Care (UBHC, Newark)

•  General Outpatient Psychiatry and Specialty Clinics including Autism Spectrum Disorders, Developmental Disorders and Tourette's Disorder


Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is a shortage field with tremendous and varied opportunities for fascinating work with youngsters and families in public service, private clinical practice and in teaching and research. The growing Division provides individualized training experiences in a supportive and challenging setting.  Information about the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Residency Program and application materials may be obtained from :
