Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

The Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry of the Department of Psychiatry of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center was organized in 1972 to provide treatment for children and adolescents with psychiatric problems and their families. The program serves as the Child Psychiatry demonstration program for the CDD.

The Division’s staff includes Board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrists and licensed clinical psychologists, providing comprehensive educational training programs to psychiatric residents, medical students, pediatric residents, psychology interns, and child and adolescent psychiatry fellows. The Division is dedicated to excellent clinical treatment for patients and their families, to the education of medical and non-medical trainees, and to research into child, adolescent, and family psychopathology.
