Child + Adolescent Psychiatry Training

The Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is dedicated to providing exceptional training experiences  so that we can help the next generation of child and adolescent mental health care clinicians prepare for their careers in this exciting and growing field. We offer training for medical students, residents, clinical psychology interns, social work interns and others in related fields.

A Unique, Advanced Training Program in Three Psychiatric Specialties

Tufts Children's at Tufts Medical Center is one of only nine medical centers in the country to offer a five-year, integrated, triple-board training program in Pediatrics, Adult Psychiatry and Child/Adolescent Psychiatry. This program trains individuals to become board eligible in all three clinical specialties.

Our program is intended to develop physicians who wish to provide clinical care, to teach, or to carry out research in areas such as child/adolescent consultation/liaison psychiatry, medical/psychiatric disorders, and mental health aspects of pediatric illnesses and developmental disorders.
