Program Description

The National Capital Consortium Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (CAP) Fellowship prepares Army, Navy, and Air Force trainees to provide a comprehensive array of evidenced based clinical services to children and families in military communities around the world. This scope of services extends from the initial assessment of both routine and complex behavioral health diagnoses to management in various settings, including outpatient, partial hospitalization, and inpatient settings. Two-year program led by faculty devoted to teaching and clinical care. Within the fellowship, working with a range of specialists, including pediatricians, clinical psychologists, social workers, developmental pediatricians, pediatric neurologists, and more, is a part of our multidisciplinary aspect. Fellows will develop a skillset that allows for them to be effective collaborators with other specialties and advocates for their patients.
