Welcome to the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Program at the University of Oklahoma School of Community Medicine in Tulsa! We are an ACGME (Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education) fully-accredited training program in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry within the Department of Psychiatry which has shown a strong commitment to training outstanding physicians for more than 30 years.
We have outstanding attending physicians who are eager to teach and bring skills from varied professional backgrounds. Our full-time faculty are all Board Certified Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists through the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology with clinical expertise in various areas within Child and Adolescent psychiatry.
The two-year child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship program at OUSCM is an innovative, well-balanced, and comprehensive training program that takes advantage of numerous community resources to offer clinical experiences in several settings. It represents the essence of the School of Community Medicine's mission to provide medical services to the underserved in collaboration with various community programs. This is one key factor which sets us apart from other similar small child fellowships. During the first year, fellows will work with children and adolescents in a multidisciplinary partial hospital program, Positive Changes, as well as provide consult-liaison services at Saint Francis Children`s Hospital. Other shorter community rotations during the first year include pediatric neurology and observational visits to a variety of public and private schools in the Tulsa area. Primary focus during the second year is on managing your own outpatient clinic. Significant strengths of the program during second year include rotations in neurodevelopmental disabilities, community child mental health, forensics, school-based mental health services in Union Public Schools, eating disorders at Laureate Psychiatric Institute, and adolescent substance abuse treatment at Tulsa Boys` Home. Our second year fellows also have an opportunity to participate in a full year of LEND Internship (Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Other-Related Disabilities) if they desire expertise in neurodevelopmental disabilities. Fellows begin seeing their own psychotherapy patients early in the first year and receive psychotherapy supervision from other child psychiatrists, psychologists, and licensed therapists in the community. The didactic program is comprehensive and led by the five-core faculty members. Guest lecturers include psychologists, other community health providers and adjunct faculty. Our faculty is cohesive and highly motivated to provide the very best fellowship training possible and to expand our impact on the delivery of quality mental health care to the children and adolescents in the Tulsa area and beyond.
Tulsa is a family-friendly, affordable city with a growing downtown, sports/cultural activities, and new state of the art public park The Gathering Place. This makes it an enjoyable family friendly place to live and train.
