Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship

Fellowship Programs

Welcome to the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship program at Phoenix Children’s. As Arizona’s only free-standing pediatric hospital and one of the 10 largest hospitals of its kind in the United States, Phoenix Children’s has long been a resource for aspiring physicians in all stages of training.

Our mission is to provide an innovative, collaborative and stimulating learning environment with exposure to diverse populations and wide-ranging experiences in order to develop skilled clinicians, exceptional teachers and lifelong learners with a dedication to their field, patients and community.

Phoenix Children’s provides outpatient, inpatient and consultative services throughout the health system and state. Here, you’ll work closely with an integrative team to support patients and grow in your profession.

We aim to provide a comprehensive program that fosters self-directed, compassionate, knowledgeable physicians who come out of training well-equipped to serve the ever-growing mental health needs of children, adolescents and young adults.

Our fellows work together with attending staff to provide comprehensive, thoughtful care grounded in evidence-based principles. As child and adolescent psychiatrists, we integrate physical and emotional health and examine the system in which the child lives to provide care that is whole and impactful. We challenge our fellows to learn, grow and develop their own practice through robust clinical experience and didactic seminars.
