Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

Director: Robert L. Findling, M.D., M.B.A.

Dr. Robert Findling

The Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry was founded by Dr. Leo Kanner in 1930. Dr. Kanner was the first physician to be identified as a child psychiatrist in this country and his textbook, Child Psychiatry (1935), is credited with introducing the specialty to the academic community.

Today, the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, now located in the new Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children's Center, continues to provide the highest quality care to its patients. Building upon the vision of its founders, the Division remains at the forefront of patient care, professional education, and research.
