Director’s Welcome

In the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship, we are encouraged to “rethink everything”! The combination of energetic new faculty members, bold new programs and cutting-edge research is leading to new training opportunities and ways to make a difference in the lives of children.

As part of our program, you will care for children and provide consultation in the brand-new Grace Grego Maxwell Mental Health Unit of the state-of-the-art Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas. You will learn outpatient skills in the innovative, multidisciplinary Texas Child Study Center. Our faculty are devoted to helping you develop into an excellent clinician and find/hone your special talents or interests in the rapidly changing field of child and adolescent psychiatry.

While your work days will be filled with a wealth of learning experiences, the mild call requirements and family-friendly attitude of our program will afford you time for your personal life in one of the most interesting cities in the nation. Music, outdoor activities, sports, political action, theatre, film and a quirky atmosphere make Austin a unique and stimulating place to live.

We are proud of where our program has been and excited about where it is going in the future. If you decide to train here, you will be a part of that future. We look forward to hearing from you.

Jane Ripperger-Suhler, M.D.
Program Director
