Fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at UCLA
- During the first year, the fellows gain experience in the inpatient setting, in the outpatient clinic, and in long-term outpatient care. Each fellow completes three 4 month-long clinical rotations: Child and Adolescent Inpatient Service, Young Child Partial Program and Consultation-Liaison/ER. In addition to the inpatient rotations, the fellows rotate in the Pediatric Trauma Clinic once a week, where they complete and observe their peers (through a one-way mirror) conduct clinical interviews and evaluations. First-year fellows also carry one long-term outpatient case throughout the year.
- In the second year, the fellows work in the outpatient setting. They see children and adolescents for evaluations and treatment in five clinics: High-Risk Child Clinic, Child Anxiety Disorders Clinic, Child Evaluation and Treatment Clinic, Pediatric Psychopharmacology Clinic, and Pediatric Neuropsychiatry Clinic. In addition to outpatient work, second year fellows complete clinical rotations in consultation to community, school and forensic settings and carry two long-term outpatient cases. All second year fellows are required to do one elective in child and adolescent psychiatry for five hours per week.
