Child + Adolescent Psychiatry Training - Life As A Fellow

Fellows as Teachers

  • Fellows teach the Child Psychiatry series for Adult Psychiatry PGY1-2 residents as part of their didactic curriculum
  • Small Group teaching seminars are held to help fellows improve teaching skills, and fellows then facilitate small group discussions with first year Tufts medical students as part of their Psychiatry curriculum.
  • Fellows serve as teachers for medical students who rotate on the Consultation / Liaison service, and also as teachers for adult psychiatry residents during emergency department evaluations of children and adolescents. 
  • During home call, fellows also serve a supervisory role for adult psychiatry residents who evaluate patients in the emergency room, with the support of the Child Psychiatry attending on call.
Fellows in the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Training Program at Tufts Medical Center in downtown Boston, MA.

Quarterly retreats built into the didactic schedule are designed to promote work-life balance and wellness, as well as building community amongst the CAP fellows.

Fellows Lunch

Weekly fellows lunch is held to provide a venue for fellows to meet, discuss any issues, enjoy time together and build a sense of belonging within the program.
