Our fellowship combines rich history with the excitement of new collaborations and opportunities. Started at Austin State Hospital in 1971 and then revived by the Seton Healthcare Family, our training program’s recent collaboration with Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin has introduced energetic new faculty members, bold new programs and cutting-edge researchers.

Our faculty members are devoted to helping you develop into an excellent clinician and find and hone your special talents or interests in the rapidly changing field of child and adolescent psychiatry.

The Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship is affiliated with the Department of Psychiatry.
