In addition to meeting all required training elements, this child psychiatry fellowship program is unique in its application of research training, telepsychiatry, and family based approach toward assessment and treatment.
The child psychiatry fellowship program is located in stunning Burlington, Vermont – a small city on the shores of Lake Champlain bordered by the Green Mountains to the east and the Adirondack Mountains to the west. The area is famous for its gorgeous fall foliage, safe and friendly communities, and a multitude of activities for the outdoor enthusiast. For more information, see the section on Living in Vermont.
The child psychiatry fellowship is part of the University of Vermont College of Medicine and Fletcher Allen and is coordinated with the General Psychiatry Residency. The program accepts two fellows per year. In general, medical students apply for admission as a PGY1 into a five year Integrated General/Child & Adolescent Psychiatry program that includes full-time child and adolescent training in the PGY4 and 5 years.
There are also current opportunities for fellows to enter the child and adolescent program as a PGY4 or 5 until current residents in the Integrated Program reach their PGY4 year.
This is truly an exciting time for the University, our Division, and the entire field of Child Psychiatry. We encourage you to consider joining us.
