Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

The Tulane Section of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, together with Neurology and Adult Psychiatry, is one of three sections in the Department of Psychiatry and Neurology at Tulane University School of Medicine. By national standards, Tulane is a medium-sized academic program, currently with eight child psychiatrists, eight child psychologists, and two social workers on the full-time faculty. The Section anticipates modest growth in the next few years. For trainees, a program this size offers the advantages of a critical mass of expertise in a number of key areas, while maintaining sufficient opportunities to work meaningfully with virtually every faculty member during training.

Tulane also offers the advantages of a mature and established program with a tradition of excellence in training plus a recent influx of new faculty enhancing expertise in certain areas and adding expertise in several new areas. Another mix offered by Tulane is between public sector psychiatry and psychiatry in private settings. In Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, most faculty members work each week in public psychiatry settings, ranging from community mental health centers to State Psychiatric Hospitals, and most also maintain practices in private, fee-for-service settings such as DePaul-Tulane Behavioral Health Center. Most of these settings provide opportunities for training child psychiatry residents, general psychiatry residents, medical students, psychology interns and postdoctoral fellows, and other trainees.
