Welcome to the Child and Adolescent Fellowship Webpage. We have a great fellowship here at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine, that offers several distinctive features.
Our fellowship is interdisciplinary, multicultural, and developmental in orientation. We provide fellows with individual attention and ample supervision, and our program has the flexibility to provide training experiences suited to a particular fellow’s interests and needs. During the fellowship, we offer three “tracks”: psychotherapy, rural /telemedicine, and research. Fellows devote some time in their first year and much more in their second year to their chosen track. They are provided with a faculty mentor with expertise in the area they have chosen.
New Mexico is a culturally diverse state, and our fellows work with patients from Hispanic, Native American, and numerous other backgrounds. Our psychiatrists and psychologists work closely with each other, and our fellows do part of their training with the psychology predoctoral interns.
Fellows participate in the Rural and Community Behavioral Health program, working with telemedicine, and providing outreach services in rural areas throughout the state. Fellows are trained in various psychotherapy modalities, and receive psychotherapy supervision from faculty and outside supervisors. The department of psychiatry is involved in multidisciplinary research, and local research resources include the MIND Institute for neuroimaging (http://www.themindinstitute.org)
Our fellowship provides a nice balance between clinical work and scholarship, while still leaving fellows enough time to enjoy the beauty of New Mexico. Our graduates are well trained in all aspects of child and adolescent psychiatry, and go on to careers in clinical child and adolescent psychiatry, academic psychiatry, or research.
