The fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins Hospital is designed to provide a comprehensive and broad-based education in psychiatric diagnosis and treatment of children, adolescents, and young adults. The program focuses on developing skills in diagnostic interviewing, case formulation, treatment planning, and psychotherapeutic and pharmacologic management in the context of a strong knowledge base in child development, principles of research, and familiarity with the function and organization of health, education, and welfare institutions.
A two-year program is offered with six fellowships per year led by faculty dedicated to teaching, clinical care, and individual research pursuits. Strengths include a large full-time faculty, a dynamic educational program, and a diverse clinical portfolio that reflects the expertise of our varied faculty members. Access to the myriad resources in the Department of Psychiatry, the Bloomberg Children’s Center, the Department of Pediatrics, specialists in the School of Medicine, the Bloomberg School of Public Health, the Kennedy Krieger Institute, and other University programs contribute to a robust learning environment.
