Triple Board Program: Pediatrics,
General Psychiatry, Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
The Triple Board Program is a five-year program that combines educational opportunities in Pediatrics, General (Adult) Psychiatry, and Child & Adolescent Psychiatry. It prepares the trainee to be board-certified in all three fields. The first two years of residency are dedicated to Pediatrics, with the final three years focused on Adult, Family, and Child & Adolescent Psychiatry. Our program has two positions each year through the categorical match of the NRMP.
WHAT MAKES OUR PROGRAM UNIQUE?
Ours is among the only Triple Board Programs nationally with sequential training in the 3 specialties. Residents begin with 2 years of Pediatrics to develop an identity as a pediatrician first. A five-year pediatrics continuity clinic follows the resident throughout training. The PGY-3 and 4 years features general adult, young adult, college mental health, and family psychiatry. The last 18 months of training (PGY-4 and 5) are devoted to Child & Adolescent Psychiatry training, while maintaining 3 adult / family psychotherapy cases, and the half-day pediatrics continuity clinic.
Strong clinical, research, advocacy, and policy opportunities within the Departments of Psychiatry and Pediatrics are a unique feature as well, with many opportunities for connections across the Stanford School of Medicine and Stanford University.
