As the tenth oldest medical school in the U.S., and one of the oldest continually accredited Child and Adolescent Psychiatry training programs in the country, Tulane has enjoyed an outstanding reputation for almost two centuries. Combining Tulane's name recognition with the national recognition of the Tulane Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Department’s work and training in areas such as infant mental health and childhood trauma and neglect, it is no wonder that graduating from this program leads to outstanding careers in academic, community or private practice in child and adolescent psychiatry.
Trying to learn more about how to become a child and adolescent psychiatrist?
There are several different training pathways to a career in child and adolescent psychiatry (CAP), each of which offers a unique training experience based on your interests. At Tulane, you can enter into the traditional general psychiatry training program first, and apply to enter into our CAP training program at the end of your third or fourth year of general psychiatry training. Additionally, we are one of the nine sites in the country that offers the Triple Board Program, in which residents are trained in pediatrics, psychiatry, and child and adolescent psychiatry.
