In addition to the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Residency
program, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and the University of Cincinnati
offer a combined (Triple Board) residency in Pediatrics, Psychiatry and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. This five-year integrated program qualifies graduates for board certification in each of these specialties.
Triple Board residents become experts in all areas of child and adolescent health, growth, development and behavior. They gain experience in the assessment and management of co-morbid pediatric and psychiatric disorders, as well as the psychosocial aspects of normal childhood development and well-child care. Graduates are well-prepared for practice opportunities in pediatrics, child and adolescent psychiatry, and academic medicine, training and research.
Throughout the training, we emphasize an integrated bio-psychosocial approach to psychiatry. Residents graduate with a strong foundation in the theory and practice of psychotherapy and state-of-the-art psychopharmacology.
