Why Choose UH Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship

Leadership and Teaching Opportunities

Fellows at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship have tremendous opportunities available to teach general psychiatry residents and medical students, both on service and in formal lectures. Fellows are expected to either present at UH Grand Rounds or publish a manuscript completed during the fellowship. Several faculty and fellows are involved in advocacy at the local, state and national levels. Fellows who are interested are encouraged to get involved and will be paired with appropriate mentors.

Mentor Guidance with Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Research

Research is encouraged but not required. If fellows are interested, they can create their own project, with mentor/faculty guidance, or be involved in one of the many active research studies conducted through UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital.

Internal and External Moonlighting Opportunities

Fellows have the opportunity to do internal moonlighting. External moonlighting is also allowed, with program approval.

Benefits Include Vacation, Education and Sick Days

Per academic year, fellows have the following days allocated as part of the program:

  • 10 education days
  • 20 vacation days
  • Up to 12 sick days

Days off can be requested in half-day increments. We encourage fellows to use their time off, to maintain a healthy work-life balance, and to prevent burnout.

We Care About Feedback

The faculty are very interested in the continued improvement of the program and meeting each fellow’s needs. We have regular program director meetings involving all of the fellows and fellowship directorship. We have a yearly fellow retreat in the spring (half work, half fun).
