We're Brand New—No One Else in New England Can Say That
Our Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship is New, Innovative, Individualized, Collaborative, Collegial, Communal—and far away from dense, hectic, congested, competitive environments.
We are accessible and affordable, progressive and inclusive, growing and accomplished, and eager to help you learn more about us! How to Apply
You Will Be Welcomed in Our Department—and Beyond
The number of child psychiatrists in western Massachusetts approaches similar ratios as is found nationally outside of major metropolitan centers. As a child psychiatry fellow at UMMS-Baaystate you will be a respected member of our department, our health system, our community, and the region.
Your presence here will be instantly appreciated by patients, families, providers, care systems, and colleagues. Your efforts will not be taken for granted, and you will feel the high regard our community has for your decision to choose our program for your training and professional goals.
Be an Active Participant on Our Multidisciplinary Teams
Our Child Psychiatry curriculum will advance your leadership skills as you are engaged with, and embedded with, pediatricians, emergency medicine, hospital and sub-specialists, and a wide range of ancillary health colleagues.
While leading care teams and services at one of the nation’s largest Child Partial Hospitalization Programs and at our nationally recognized child trauma treatment program, the Family Advocacy Center, you will mentor physicians and students-in-training across pediatrics, psychiatry, and emergency medicine.
You Will Be Our Colleague and Collaborator
In our new program, you have unique opportunities to help shape your training toward your career goals—while helping grow our program, the Division of Child Psychiatry, and the Department of Psychiatry overall.
We are actively collaborating with a partnering health system to build a new psychiatric hospital that will feature new child and adolescent units—creating new positions and opportunities for education, professional development, and beginning early careers in child psychiatry.
Feel welcome to share your insight, energy, enthusiasm, ideas, passions, and perspective with our inclusive faculty, team members, and, of course, your patients and caregivers.
