Welcome to the Child & Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychology Training Programs

The Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychology training programs at Stanford University train participants as clinicians and scholars, preparing them to take on leadership roles in Academic Child and Adolescent Mental Health, Clinical Practice, Research, Teaching, and Public Service.

The Stanford training programs are based on the principles of developmental sciences and developmental psychopathology. This theoretical framework views human development and its disturbances as flowing from the complex and reciprocal interactions between the family, biology, and the broader cultural, social, and physical environments. The clinical sites are centered at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford, with rotations through allied agencies in the communities of Santa Clara and San Mateo counties, and elsewhere in the San Francisco Bay Area. 

We strive to champion justice, equity, diversity and inclusion within our training programs and broader community through reflection, action, and an authentic appreciation of each other.  We also strive to optimize the health and well-being of our Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Fellows, Doctoral Child Psychology Interns and Postdoctoral Child Psychology Fellows by creating supportive clinical and learning environments that encourage individual growth and professional identity formation.
