Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University, Montefiore Medical Center, and New York City Children's Center-Bronx Campus (NYCC-Bronx Campus) collaborate with the threefold mission of:
The first year is designed to meet the training goals of competence in the clinical assessment and treatment of children, adolescents and their families; pediatric psychopathology; psychopharmacology; pediatric psychosomatic medicine; emergency pediatric psychiatry; and, multiple psychotherapeutic modalities including psychodynamic, cognitive, interpersonal, play, supportive, family, brief, group and dialectical behavioral therapies. The first year of training is also the beginning of training in diagnostic evaluations, long-term psychotherapy and psychopharmacological management in our outpatient Child Psychiatry Continuity Clinic. In 2015-2016 we piloted an elective rotation in child global mental health in Uganda which was a success and will continued to be offered to current fellows.
A first year fellow serves as Chief Resident for the year, coordinating activities of both child psychiatry fellows and adult residents in Child/Adolescent Psychiatry as well as acting as liaison to the faculty. The chief resident continues to serve as chief during their second year, coordinating curriculum, rotations and participating in committee work. These are important leadership positions and the first year chief resident attends the annual “Tarrytown Leadership Conference”.
The second year of training is designed to consolidate experiences, further define fellows’ interests, and broaden and deepen their ability to treat pediatric patients and families. Their core didactics include child development, advanced pediatric psychopharmacology, journal club and an advanced seminar which culminates in a graduation paper.
Fellows rotate on an inpatient adolescent and inpatient child psychiatry service. During the last part of the inpatient rotation, the fellow has the opportunity to act as junior attending and work on leadership skills that will be necessary upon graduation. For six months of the second year, fellows rotate on our consultation rotations: The Kennedy Center, where fellows learn about the Developmental Disorders ; Bronx High School of Science and PS 8 where fellows treat high school students and evaluate elementary school students; Montefiore Medical Group where fellows work in an embedded pediatric site to provide consultation to pediatricians in primary care on family issues in an attachment-based treatment format; Fordham University at the College Mental Health Service.
There is an opportunity for elective research in the second year and fellows continue to provide long term psychotherapy and medication management outpatient work.
We participate in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) through the
Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS)
and abides by all of its regulations. Information about a fellow’s contract, benefits, and salary can be found at the links listed below.
