Mental health problems in children are very common; child psychiatrists are not. When a child suffers from emotional/behavioral problems, the family needs a physician who understands the whole picture. The health care professionals at Fletcher Allen Child Psychiatry are not only clinicians: our psychiatrists are also acclaimed researchers and teachers, dedicated to training the next generation of child psychiatrists.

Training a New Breed of Child Psychiatrist

The doors opened in 2009 to Vermont’s only Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship program. With support from the entire community, this program was designed to incorporate the advancements being promoted by our faculty.

This fellowship combines training in comprehensive clinical assessment and treatment using the Vermont Family Based Approach with opportunities in mentored research training to develop a new type of child psychiatrist.

This new breed of physician is proficient in applying knowledge in developmental neuroscience in ways that treat illness and create wellness. Our fellows will be specifically trained with an eye towards working with primary care physicians in our health promotion, prevention and family-based intervention models. These collaborations will ultimately ensure that all Vermont children and families will have access to emotional behavioral health care.
