Schedule of Rotations

INTRODUCTION

Because the current standard of care in child & adolescent psychiatry is a team approach to evaluation and treatment, psychiatric training in the UConn Health Center Child Division is multi-disciplinary. Residents are exposed to teaching by many different disciplines who commonly work treating children and adolescents with early onset behavioral health disorders including social work, nursing, psychology, master-level therapists, and child psychiatrists. Because child & adolescent psychiatrists work in many different settings employing a wide variety of skills, training in the UConn Health Center Child Division occurs in many different sites. Because the Division has a focus on public sector psychiatry, training emphasizes evaluation and treatment of the seriously emotionally disturbed child and adolescent, who is generally involved in multiple systems of care. The child psychiatry resident learns many empirically based individual, family, and systems interventions, both psychosocial and biologic/psychopharmacological, during the course of two years of residency training. Although the emphasis is on clinical work, participation in academic and research projects is highly encouraged during training.
