Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship

Delivering Focused Clinical Training in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry

The Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship at Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin combines rich history with the excitement of new collaborations and opportunities. Started at Austin State Hospital in 1971 and then revived by Ascension Seton, the training program’s collaboration with Dell Med and UT has introduced energetic new faculty members, bold new programs and cutting-edge researchers.

Faculty members are devoted to helping trainees develop into excellent clinicians and enhance their special talents or interests in the rapidly changing field of child and adolescent psychiatry.

The Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship is affiliated with the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences.
