Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship


Welcome!  Thank you for your interest in our Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship at Children’s National Medical Center. On this site you will find information about our training program, our department, and our institution – please take a look and feel free to contact us for any questions.

The Department of Psychiatry at Children's National Medical Center was founded by the late Dr. Reginald Lourie and is one of the oldest in the nation. Its history of providing care to children with emotional and behavioral disturbances and advancing the understanding and treatment of these disorders is well established.

Education is a core component of the departmental mission, and teaching is a high priority for the faculty.  Several have been trained in the George Washington University School of Human Resources Development/ School of Education Master Teachers Program.  In addition to training child and adolescent psychiatry fellows in our program, we are a training site for general psychiatry residents and child and adolescent psychiatry fellows from the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, general psychiatry residents and medical students from George Washington University, and general psychiatry residents from St Elizabeth’s Hospital. The faculty members also train pediatric and neurology residents from Children's National Medical Center and senior medical students from regional and national medical schools. Thus, there is a lively educational culture in the department and fellows benefit from the opportunity both to learn and to teach.

The fellowship program is especially strong in treatment of severely disturbed children and youth, pediatric consultation liaison, infant and toddler psychiatry, and broad-based outpatient services. From its inception, the training program of the Department of Psychiatry has leveraged its location in our nation’s capital to engage in advocacy for child and adolescent mental health. Many graduates from the Children’s National Medical Center residency program continue to devote their time in clinical and/or academic work to promote better care for children and youth. Faculty members of the Department of Psychiatry are active in child and adolescent mental health affairs locally, nationally, and internationally.
