Didactics and Scholarly Activity


All didactic activity is on UTHSC Blackboard.

Fellows have regular didactics that include thorough study of standard textbooks of child and adolescent psychiatry (Lewis textbook and Dulcan textbook), psychopharmacology, consultation liaison, forensics, child development, ethics, cultural aspects of child and adolescent psychiatry, trauma, and journal club.

They have a longitudinal didactic in a group format discussing the tenets of individual therapy with chilDr.en and adolescents.

Fellows have a longitudinal family therapy seminar.  They are also required to attend Department of Psychiatry grand rounds and Boling Center didactics provided by developmental pediatrics.

The faculty are mainly UT core and volunteer faculty.

Fellows take a lead role in discussing topics they have been assigned and serve as teachers and mentors to residents and medical students who also rotate with us.

They are required to pick a project of their interest for scholarly activity with their mentors and work on this gradually over 1-2 years.

Fellows are also part of quality control committees especially in their 2nd year.
