Welcome to the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Training Program at Brown Alpert Medical School!
Our program offers the unique integration of an unparalleled clinical training setting; a deep commitment to the integrated treatment of the psychological, behavioral, and somatic manifestations of mental illness; an enormously productive research program; and a culture of warmth and collegiality. Trainees develop their clinical skills while caring for patients from diverse backgrounds at Bradley Hospital, the nation’s first hospital dedicated solely to child and adolescent psychiatry, and at Hasbro Children’s Hospital, the state’s only pediatric hospital. A large faculty of academic clinicians and scientists affiliated with the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University’s Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior provides supportive supervision and mentorship that lead to the creation of lifelong professional relationships. The Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Residency Training Program enables trainees to develop competency in the diagnosis and treatment of children and adolescents with emotional, physical, and developmental problems. Our weekly didactic seminars (via a full protected academic day each week) emphasize core aspects of the field, including neuroscience and evidence-based medicine treatment, as well critical aspects of psychotherapy. Clinical rotations are arranged in an orderly progression of increasing responsibility over the two years and are supplemented by courses, seminars and both individual and small group supervision. The program offers a minimal call schedule in a livable, affordable, and exciting city within easy reach of beaches, quaint rural New England, and the urban centers of Boston and New York. Graduates of our program have gone on to pursue thriving careers in diverse practice locations and have also assumed leadership roles around the country in teaching, research, and administration.
