Message from the Program Director
Welcome to Penn State Hershey Medical Center Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Program
Penn State Hershey Medical Center offers an accredited, two-year fellowship training program in child psychiatry. Applications are accepted in any year of psychiatric residency training after the PGY-III year.
Milton S. Hershey Medical Center is located in a scenic semi-rural setting and serves a large, diverse patient population from a wide geographic area. All social classes, racial and ethnic backgrounds are represented.
The heart of our training program is a 40 hour per week, two year integrated didactic curriculum that covers a variety of topics in detail.
Monthly journal clubs and case conferences encourage trainees to develop their critical thinking skills while keeping them up-to-date with the current evidence based practices in psychiatry.
In addition to the scheduled rotations, fellows have a full month of elective time during the second year of training which they can use to pursue research or to enroll in a number of other clinical electives or other scholarly activities. Trainees are encouraged to design their own elective rotation targeting their specific area of interest in child psychiatry.
Penn State Child Psychiatry Fellowship Program offers innumerable, unique opportunities in scholarly activities and research. Our Psychiatry department has an in-house Research Day in which many fellows participate and have been recognized at and later presented their work at national meetings.
I look forward to meeting you in person and introducing you to the endless clinical and scholarly opportunities at our Program.
