Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Program

Director: Esther Lee, M.D.
Associate Director: Hal Kronsberg, M.D.

The Fellowship Program 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 their families. The program focuses on developing skill 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 residents per year led by faculty dedicated to teaching, clinical care, and individual research pursuits. Access to the myriad resources in the Department of Psychiatry, the Children's Center/Department of Pediatrics, specialists in the School of Medicine, the Bloomberg School of Public Health, and other University programs and faculty contribute to a robust learning environment.
