Welcome to the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Program of the Department of Psychiatry, University of Maryland School of Medicine!

Our fellowship is one of the largest in the country, and we’ve been training in psychiatry residency education for more than 60 years.

What make us unique?

  • Partnerships with the nationally ranked Sheppard Pratt Health System and State of Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene
  • Preventative and therapeutic mental health services for children and adolescents through inpatient, ambulatory, and community programs
  • Our award-winning leaders in telemedicine, infant psychiatry, school mental health program, forensic psychiatry, and more

Diversity is our focus: We are committed to creating a training environment and culture that reflects our surrounding community and society. We interview candidates from diverse backgrounds to foster a more skilled and innovative workforce. Learn more about our commitment to diversity and the UM Diversity Advisory Council.

Our location is key, too:

  • Our program is housed in the heart of Baltimore, allowing for hands-on experience in the hub of our diverse community.
  • We’re uniquely positioned to influence public policy. We are 30 minutes from the state capitol and an hour from the NIH and Washington D.C.
