Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Residency Program

Many people study psychiatry to better understand the human mind while also helping people in need. Getting into a child and adolescent psychiatry residency program will allow you to do both of these things. As a psychiatrist for the young and vulnerable, you'll be able to diagnose and treat mental, behavioral, and emotional disorders in children and teens. Any job can be stressful, but psychiatry in particular can take a toll on someone's well being. That means psychiatrists need to be extremely compassionate and understanding, patient, empathetic, and able to withstand stressful situations. Those who have these characteristics can find the job extremely rewarding. Taking part in a residency program allows you to get a taste of daily life as a child and adolescent psychiatrist. You'll learn to perform diagnostic exams, evaluate patients, create treatment plans, and counsel patients and families.
