Thank you for your interest in the child & adolescent psychiatry fellowship training program at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. We are delighted that you are considering our program and out community for further training. Our program is built upon the outstanding and diverse array of clinical services, from specialized care for individuals with developmental disabilities, to innovation in integrated care with our partners in pediatrics, to community-based programs treating some of Baltimore’s most vulnerable youth. Johns Hopkins is also home to numerous researchers and innovators in the field of child and adolescent psychiatry and our faculty and institution is deeply committed to educating and training the next leaders in the field.

Our program begins the first year with a thorough grounding in acute care at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Trainees rotate through our inpatient unit and day hospital program, treating children and adolescents with a wide variety of ages and challenges. Our consult-liaison rotation is designed to maximize exposure to children with medical and psychiatric illnesses, as well as a range of pediatric neurological issues. The first year also includes two months of elective rotations to supplement clinical knowledge in the areas of substance abuse and treatment, developmental disorders, school-based psychiatry, forensics, and pediatric neurology. First year also provides a comprehensive outpatient experience, and fellows will participate in a longitudinal outpatient experience which lasts for both years of the fellowship.

The second year of training is focused on outpatient care. Trainees rotate through the Children’s Mental Health Clinic in downtown Baltimore as well as the Developmental Disabilities Clinic at the world-renowned Kennedy Krieger Institute. Experiences in individual and family therapy are also included in this year. In addition, fellows have one elective day per week to pursue their own professional interests in any area within the specialty, taking advantage of the rich array of clinical and academic offerings within the Hopkins system by exploring research opportunities or practicing specialized care.

The training programs takes full advantage of the breadth of expertise at Hopkins. The didactic curriculum has specialized modules on everything from developmental neuropsychiatry, taught by a multidisciplinary team of psychiatrists with specialties in neurology and development and other professions, to a curriculum focused on the social determinants of health, taught by a team of community-focused practitioners.

In addition to preparing our fellows to be excellent clinicians, we also aim to graduate inquisitive lifelong learners who will make profound and positive differences in the lives of the children they treat. We are thrilled with your interest in becoming a part of the Hopkins family and we look forward to meeting you soon.
