Program Mission and Goals

The mission of Emory’s Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Program is to educate and support our trainees in their career development. We strive to graduate knowledgeable, professional, and ethical child and adolescent psychiatrists who can provide high-quality, evidence-based, culturally competent, compassionate, and collaborative care to patients and their families.

We strive to

1) Provide fellows with comprehensive training in child and adolescent psychiatry so that graduates can provide outstanding care to youth, understand the relevant systems of care, and advocate effectively for their patients.

2) Support fellows’ individual career goals while providing a supportive, safe, diverse, and inclusive environment for learning and ongoing career development.

3) Provide opportunities for scholarship, advocacy, education, mentorship, and leadership.

4) Provide exposure to diverse patient populations in a variety of settings in the Atlanta area.

5) Provide robust experiences in individual and family therapy in addition to psychopharmacology.

6) Foster critical thinking and promote lifelong learning in the context of a rapidly changing healthcare environment.
