Clinical Rotations

Our clinical rotations and curriculum are designed to provide our trainees with an excellent clinical training experience that produces highly qualified child and adolescent psychiatrists who have a superior medical knowledge base, excellent clinical skills, and the ability to effectively apply those skills in the practice of child and adolescent psychiatry.

The Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Clinic provides psychiatric evaluations, treatments and the pharmacologic management of childhood mental disorders. It accepts referrals from other physicians and mental health professionals for the consultation and/or joint management of cases.

Fellows and residents in training provide care under the direct supervision of the attending physician/faculty member. The faculty and trainees also provide clinical services in various settings, inpatient, outpatient, partial hospitalization, and pediatric consultation/liaison services at University Behavioral Health Care (Rutgers), Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, Somerset Medical Center, University Correctional Health Care- Juvenile Justice Commission (UBHC/Rutgers), Children’s Specialized Hospital and others. The services emphasize multimodal and multidisciplinary evaluation and treatment, and collaboration with the family, school and community.
