Child/Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship



Our fellows have the privilege of training with an eminent group of Child/Adolescent psychiatrists. Leaders in research, psychopharmacology, child psychotherapy and psychoanalysis, our faculty members are distinguished by their academic and clinical expertise, as well as their longstanding commitment to the teaching and supervision of fellows in their field.



The supervisory process is psychiatry's time-honored approach to developing and refining the trainee’s psychotherapeutic and other clinical skills. Throughout their time with us, residents and fellows receive a variety of supervisory experiences to ensure that their encounter with each modality is enriched with a high level of expertise. Our trainees have extremely close, constant access to our faculty in a supportive environment. This results in highly effective collaboration and mentoring.

Fellows have multiple outpatient psychotherapy and psychopharmacology supervisors, an administrative supervisor and participate in group Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) supervision. In addition to these supervisors, they are supervised in their work in consultation/liaison, emergency child psychiatry and DBT by the service attendings on site. This guidance and oversight is a crucial part of the learning that takes place in the first year and complements the clinical and academic program.



As an essential part of the training program, timely and clear feedback provides residents with a personalized guide for fully developing their clinical skills. Supervisors complete evaluations toward the end of each rotation and at six-month intervals. The Albert Einstein College of Medicine Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Training Committee meet biannually to review the progress of all trainees. Twice a year our directors of training provide trainees with both feedback based on this review and written evaluations.

In addition to the evaluation process, each fellow completes, at a minimum, three Clinical Skills Verification exams and receives feedback from his/her examiner.

There is also an annual written exam, given in compliance with the standards of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education's (ACGME) Psychiatric Residency Review Committee. We offer this to facilitate professional growth and ensure that our training offers the most appropriate and up-to-date clinical and didactic guidance and input.

Fellows also provide feedback to supervisors and course instructors and evaluate their clinical rotations. Additionally, fellows participate in an annual retreat that consists of a professional development activity, as well as an opportunity to review the program and provide feedback in a retreat report, which is reviewed by the training directors.
