The Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship helps fellows develop their skills evaluating and treating children and adolescents using multimodal techniques.

The program is an exciting challenge that prepares fellows for a successful and fulfilling career. We are proud that our students go on to become well-trained, competent and caring graduates who represent us well in their future careers. We are a small, collegial group, and our training program plays a significant role in the functioning of our department and our broader community.

Why Train at Wake Forest?

As part of the training, fellows provide direct service to children and adolescents at various out patient clinics. They also have an opportunity to work closely with professionals and students of other disciplines, including:

  • General Psychiatry Residents
  • Nurses, PAs, and Medical Students
  • School Systems
  • Psychologists
  • Social workers
  • Emergency and Primary Care Providers

When on the inpatient service, fellows provide direct patient care while supervising general psychiatry residents and medical students. They also coordinate care with the rest of the Inpatient Treatment Team in a multidisciplinary setting.

Fellows also gain senior administrative experience by actively participating in administrative decision making.
