Child and Adolescent

Inpatient

In PGY2 year, residents rotate onto CATU (Comprehensive Assessment and Treatment Unit), which is a unique, 9-bed unit reserved only for DCFS wards with severe psychopathology and complex social issues. Supervision occurs under one of three attendings, each of whom brings different expertise to UIC: Dr. Naylor, Dr. Charney, and/or Dr. Najjar. This service differs in many ways from other PGY1/2 rotations, in particular due to the low patient load, which provides residents with significant opportunity to be comprehensively involved in multidisciplinary aspects of each patient’s case as well as to develop and practice psychotherapy skills.

 

Outpatient

Various experiences for residents starting in PGY2 year.

  • General Diagnostic Clinic, ADHD Clinic, and Med Management Clinics provide PGY2 residents with exposure to various outpatient clinics with focus on evaluation and diagnosis as well as assessment of and managing family dynamics
  • ADHD Clinic – This is a PGY3 elective, 4-6 month longitudinal elective rotation under Dr. Mulvihill, which provides followup med management for children and adolescents with ADHD.
  • Psychotherapy – 2 hours/week is required for PGY3 residents (unless replaced with ADHD elective described above), along with 1 hour/week of supervision under Drs Kelley or Cook. Residents can elect to continue child psychotherapy into their PGY4 year.
