  • Why did I choose the UIC Child Psychiatry Fellowship?

    I am interested in working with children who have experienced trauma and better understanding the role of lower socioeconomics with mental health and felt that UIC would be wonderful experience for this. I am also interested in the exposure of teaching and research along with clinical and working to better understand how I might balance these going forward.

  • Why did I choose the UIC Child Psychiatry Fellowship?

    I was impressed by the number of previous graduates of the program that had stayed or returned to work for UIC.  To me this meant that they had a positive experience as fellows and wanted to continue a relationship with the institution. I also liked the idea of having joint didactics with the Child and Adolescent fellowship program at RUSH. I viewed this as a great way to learn and network with a larger group of people while still maintaining the family and close-knit feeling of being in a small program. Lastly, the energy and vibe of the fellows and faculty were great on interview day, and I could tell they were as enthusiastic about child and adolescent psychiatry as I was.

  • Why did I choose the UIC Child Psychiatry Fellowship?

    Having strong family ties to the city, I knew I wanted to be at an institution that not only allowed for training opportunities that aligned with my academic interests but was also deeply committed to serving the diverse communities of Chicago. The combination of the supportive/family-friendly training environment and unique clinical opportunities (Women’s Mental Health Program selective, Immigrant Family Mental Health Advocacy Program etc..) made it clear that UIC was the right program for me.
