About Us


About Us:

The Detroit Medical Center/Wayne State University Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (CAP) fellowship is fully accredited by ACGME and offers residents excellent clinical, educational, and research opportunities. The two-year fellowship has a university base and offers urban-suburban, public-private, and academic-community perspectives.

Our commitment to education is reflected in ample protected time for didactics and no overnight call responsibilities. There is an ongoing process to review the curriculum so that it remains relevant to the changing health care world that residents encounter. We emphasize the importance of an understanding of child development with a unique Early Childhood Curriculum that spans both years of training. We partner with multiple other agencies to expand the scope of our fellows' experiences. Fellows learn to navigate barriers to care that impact patients from underserved backgrounds, and become experts in understanding and addressing the complex biopsychosocial presentation unique to each patient. As a smaller fellowship program, our fellows are encouraged to develop their own particular areas of interest and to tailor their training according to these interests. Multiple opportunities exist for residents interested in research, teaching, advocacy, and leadership.

The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences demonstrates a strong commitment to advancing the excellence of research, scholarship, teaching, and clinical service while striving to create an academic environment that embraces and respects differences, actively pursues equity, and fosters the recruitment, promotion, and development of racial, ethnic, and gender diversity in our faculty, trainees, and staff.
