The Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship is a 2-year training program offered through the Department of Psychiatry of The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth and affiliated with Dartmouth-Hitchcock.

Typically, residents enter the child and adolescent psychiatry program after the Postgraduate Year (PGY)-3 or PGY-4 year of adult psychiatry residency. Residents who have completed PGYs I or II at other adult psychiatry training programs may inquire re: simultaneously applying to the child and adult psychiatry programs to complete training in both areas.

Our training mission is to prepare future leaders in meeting the psychiatric needs of children and families in our region and other rural communities.

Program aims

The Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Program aims are to:

  • Ensure Child and Adolescent Psychiatry fellows are competent in the developmental psychiatric evaluation and evidence-based treatment approaches to the entire age span of childhood, adolescents, and transition-age youth.
  • Successfully transition our in-patient training experience from New Hampshire Hospital to a robust training site with opportunities for exposure to residential and in-patient treatment of youth through the child to transition age span.
  • To ensure all incoming child fellows receive exposure to research principles, methodology and are involved in hands-on research-oriented clinical projects.
