Year 4

Dedicated Research Time

Seven months

As residents enter their PGY4 year, the focus of clinical training shifts to working primarily with children and trainees have substantial research time. Four months are spent on the Child Psychiatry inpatient unit (12 years old and younger), to solidify the skills learned in the PGY2 rotation. An additional month is spent on the child psychiatry C-L service. The remaining seven months are protected research time. The long-term adult and child psychotherapy cases (one each) are maintained throughout the year. Integrated residents take 50% of Child Psychiatry Fellowship overnight (home) call during the five months that they are on clinical service.
