Patient Care

Clinical Services

Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Faculty provide comprehensive clinical services using Evidence-Based intervention to achieve excellence in patient care, while implementing innovative approaches to optimize functioning and long-term outcome. These services are provided through several outpatient specialty clinics, inpatient programs, and community-based programs:


The Outpatient Clinics provide psychiatric care to children and adolescents from 2 to 18 years of age. Clinic staff consisting of child psychiatrists and psychologists, child psychiatry and post-doctoral psychology fellows, and general psychiatry residents provide initial evaluations, second opinions, and ongoing treatment. Services include: psychotherapy (individual, family, parenting), pharmacotherapy, and psychological testing (differential diagnosis, learning disabilities, attention problems, intellectual disability).
