This freestanding children's hospital has been recognized as one of America's Best Children's Hospitals by U.S. News & World Report.

In addition, fellows will provide psychiatry consultation in the Wolfson Children's Emergency Center.

The other six month rotation during the first year focuses on addiction, juvenile justice and forensics. During the addiction component, fellows will gain experience caring for youth with substance use disorders and other comorbid psychiatric disorders at Gateway Community Services, a long-term adolescent drug and alcohol residential treatment facility.

Fellows will participate in juvenile drug court, practice family and group therapy, and observe juvenile justice forensic psychiatry evaluations.
