Welcome! We are pleased to announce the launch of the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Training Program, which welcomed its first class in July 2018. The goal of the American Council of Graduate Medical Education accredited two year training program is to prepare highly-skilled child and adolescent psychiatrists who can meet the increasing need for child and adolescent mental health care.

Fellows will care for a diverse youth population with a wide range of psychopathology (e.g., attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autism, anxiety, bipolar, depression, eating disorders, PTSD, schizophrenia, substance use disorders). Our training program allows fellows to practice in a variety of clinical settings (e.g., academic outpatient, community outpatient, inpatient, partial hospitalization, residential, substance abuse treatment facilities). In addition, fellows will learn to become psychiatric consultants to pediatricians, the school system and the juvenile justice system.

Highlights of the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Training Program include:

  • Continuous, two-year outpatient experience at UF Health Psychiatry – Dupont Station
    • All fellows will spend two years caring for patients at our main academic location with the supervision of our core faculty members. This longitudinal experience will allow fellows to develop long-term relationships with families, observe how clinical symptoms change over time, and respond to various treatment modalities.
  • Be part of inpatient, consult-liaison and partial hospitalization program rotations at Wolfson Children's Hospital, which has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of America's Best Children's Hospitals
  • Electives offered throughout all 12 months of the second year so fellows are able to pursue research and/or specialized clinical experiences
  • Emphasis on integration of mental health in primary care through our collaborative care rotation – (see our partnership website link: Collaborative Care Initiative)
  • Specialized rotations in:
    • Adolescent addictions
    • Autism
    • Child abuse and neglect
    • Dialectical behavioral therapy
    • Forensic child and adolescent psychiatry
    • School consultation

We are delighted that you are interested in our program at the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville, and we encourage you to learn more about us on our website. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We wish you the best of luck as you pursue a rewarding, challenging career as a child and adolescent psychiatrist!
