About Us


Thank you for your interest in the Detroit Medical Center/Wayne State University Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (CAP) Residency Training Program.  Our program aims to provide residents with excellent clinical, educational, and research experiences. Our residents gain experience not only through well supervised inpatient and outpatient rotations, but also in a variety of community settings in which a child and adolescent psychiatrist is likely to work, such as schools, pediatric units, and forensic and substance abuse programs. 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 residents' experiences, including agreements with the Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute, Hawthorn Center, Starfish Family Services, Vista Maria Residential Treatment Center as well as many others.  As a smaller fellowship program, our residents 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.
