Thank you for your interest in our Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Program!

We've been a leader in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry fellowship education and training for more than 60 years, and are delighted to share more information with you.

Our fully ACGME-accredited, two-year Child and Adolescent Psychiatry fellowship—sponsored by University of Maryland Medical System, nationally ranked Sheppard Pratt Health System and State of Maryland—is one of the largest in the country.

Acclaimed Teaching and Research Hub

Our transdisciplinary team provides preventative and therapeutic mental health services for children and adolescents through inpatient, ambulatory and community programs. We have a child and adolescent inpatient unit, consultation/liaison service, outpatient child and adolescent clinic, trauma specialty clinic, outpatient center for infant psychiatry and a nationally acclaimed School Mental Health Program.

On a campus-wide level, the University of Maryland School of Medicine includes internationally renowned facilities, such as the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, Institute of Biotechnology, Institute for Virology and much more—all within walking distance of one another. 

We interview qualified candidates from diverse backgrounds to foster a more skilled and innovative workforce. Our diversity and inclusion efforts include expanding our curriculum, nominating and supporting trainees for the American Psychiatric Association Minority Fellowships, and participation in events such as the department's annual Cultural and Diversity Symposium.


We are located in the heart of Baltimore City, so you'll have the opportunity to train and care for patients from diverse backgrounds, socioeconomic statuses, and demographics – making top-tier healthcare accessible to all who need it.

In addition to the training opportunities afforded by Baltimore, you can also enjoy the charms our city has to offer, including the waterfront neighborhoods of Canton and Fells Point, restaurants and nightlife in Federal Hill and the museums of Mount Vernon. You can also catch a game at Camden Yards or see the Ravens play at the M&T Bank Stadium. Washington D.C. is only about an hour away! The proximity of two cities provides plenty of employment opportunities for significant others and many options for weekend fun.
