Child and Adolescent

The Child and Adolescent Psychiatry experience starts in the PGY-2 year. This is advantageous for residents contemplating fast tracking into Child Psychiatry as it gives them early exposure to the field to help them make their decision about fellowship.

Inpatient

In the PGY-2 year, residents rotate onto CATU (Comprehensive Assessment and Treatment Unit), which is a unique, 9-bed unit reserved only for Illinois Department of Children & Family Services (DCFS) wards with severe psychopathology and complex social issues. Supervision occurs under one of two attendings, each of whom brings different expertise to UIC: Dr. Naylor, and/or Dr. Charney, and/or Dr. Najjar. This service differs in many ways from other PGY-1 or -2 rotations. The low patient load provides residents with significant opportunity to be comprehensively involved in the multidisciplinary aspects of each patient’s case as well as to develop and practice psychotherapy skills.

 

Outpatient

Various experiences starting in the PGY-2 year provide residents with exposure to outpatient clinics with a focus on the evaluation and diagnosis of patients and the assessment and management of family dynamics:

  • ADHD Clinic and Fellow Continuity Clinic – PGY-2 residents have the opportunity to rotate with Dr. Hage in the ADHD Clinic and the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry fellows in their Continuity Clinic. Additional outpatient experiences are available on request.
  • Intake Clinic – During their Intake Clinic rotation, PGY-3 residents complete comprehensive diagnostic evaluations for children and adolescents with Dr. Adeyanju.
  • Psychotherapy Clinic – Residents can elect to work with children in their psychotherapy clinics as PGY-3s and -4s. Residents are assigned a child psychiatrist as their supervisor.
