Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship

Program Overview











The two-year training program in child & adolescent psychiatry at the University of Colorado School of Medicine is comprehensive, involving: consultation, diagnostic evaluation, and treatment of ​children from birth to young adulthood and their families/caregivers as appropriate. The settings include outpatient clinics, inpatient units for children and adolescents with emotional disorders, a rich consultation/liaison service, a child psychiatry emergency department, a neuro psychiatric care unit, and an eating disorder unit. Training sites are located within the Children's Hospital Colorado, one of the top 10 children's hospitals in the country, Denver Health, the University of Colorado, school-based clinics, and community mental health centers. Supervision is offered in evidence-based intensive individual psychotherapies, planned short-term therapy, crisis intervention, infant psychiatry, group psychotherapy, family therapy and  psychopharmacologic therapeutic modalities. In the second year of the training program, significant time is set aside weekly for individualized electives.​​
