Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship
CURRENTLY THE PROGRAM IS NOT TAKING APPLICATIONS. THE PROGRAM IS ACTIVELY RECRUITING NEW FACULTY TO BE ABLE TO CONTINUE TO OFFER TRAINING IN CHILD AND ADOLESCENT PSYCHIATRY.
The Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry of the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University offers a two-year fellowship accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Requirements for admission to the program include graduation from an accredited four year medical school, completion of three years of accredited psychiatric residency training, passing Step III of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) and a J1 visa (when applicable). The applicant must qualify for a medical license with the North Carolina Medical Board. Presently the program is approved for four residents, with two rotating off each year.
Our Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Residency Training Program is designed to offer residents a well-balanced professional training experience. This includes a broad range of exposure to children on a continuum of normal to abnormal development, with a range of ages, and from a range of cultural backgrounds for diagnostic assessment, treatment and prevention of pathology. The program utilizes clinical experience and a formal didactic curriculum covering major areas in child and adolescent psychiatry; consultation experiences in pediatric, school, juvenile justice, social services and other community settings; and a graduated level of responsibility throughout the two training years. Residents will develop growing competence in clinical service, consultation, teaching, research, and administration.
Like the general psychiatry program, our residency program provides opportunities to train in a variety of training sites throughout eastern North Carolina. The patient population is socially, economically and racially diverse and is drawn from Pitt County and the surrounding 33 counties.
