The Child and Adolescent Psychiatry training programs at Stanford University train participants as clinicians, preparing them to take on leadership roles in Academic Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Clinical Practice, and Public Service.
The programs integrate information from molecular biology, human genetics, developmental biology, the neurosciences, developmental psychology, the behavioral and social sciences, and epidemiology. They are based on the principles of Developmental Psychopathology, which considers human psychological development to be a product of developmental biology, the family, and the broader social and physical environments.
The programs are centered at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford, with rotations through allied agencies. We have a nationally recognized cooperative relationship with the Department of Pediatrics. Research programs and advanced seminars are also available in other University departments including the Department of Psychology, the School of Education, the School of Law, and the Carnegie Center for the Study of Adolescents.
The programs are available to medical students, pediatric residents, adult psychiatry residents, psychologists, and professional colleagues in the community. It is ideal for individuals who are interested in human development and pathology.
