Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Training Program.
Maryland State Dept. of Health and Mental Hygiene, Baltimore.; Maryland Univ., Baltimore.; Sheppard and Enoch Pratt Hospital, Baltimore, MD.; American Association of State Colleges and Universities, Washington, DC.
The major goal of the 2-year child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship program at the University of Maryland is to provide an integrated but flexible set of learning experiences, with areas of emphasis including child and adolescent development, early intervention and prevention of mental health problems, community child psychiatry, and research. A total of 12 full-time positions are available along with a few part-time positions. Experiences are provided in the evaluation and treatment of children and adolescents in inpatient, outpatient, and community settings. Training and supervision are offered for individual psychotherapy, family therapy, group therapy, mental health consultation, and research. Because of the large variety of training sites available, each fellow's program can be individualized. Each fellow receives 5-6 hours per week of individual supervision, and each has the opportunity to teach residents and medical students during the second year. Training facilities at the University of Maryland include the Center for Infant Study, the Child and Adolescent Inpatient Service, and the Child Psychiatry Pediatric Liaison Service. Community-based programs include the school systems in three districts, the Regional Institute for Children and Adolescents, and the Adolescent Inpatient Service. (SM)
