The Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry offers two positions a year in a five-year training program that includes a one year pediatric internship, two years of general psychiatry training, and two years of child psychiatry training.
This program is a joint effort of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences (Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry) and the Department of Pediatrics and represents a shared interest in training strong candidates in the field. The program has brought together the strengths of each training experience and connected them for a select group of medical students who wish to become child psychiatrists. In addition to the core educational requirements and opportunities, this program offers trainees a unique position through which to build relationships across departments as they develop their knowledge and skills.
All training is through existing programs at Johns Hopkins and students apply through a preliminary year of pediatrics internship. That year is only available in conjunction with this five-year program. The internship includes ten months of a variety of pediatric rotations, one month of adult neurology, and one month of pediatric neurology. The next two years are focused on general psychiatry training and the final two years are the child psychiatry residency program.
