Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Behavioral Science

Post Pediatric Portal Program

The Post Pediatric Portal Program is a three-year combined training program in general psychiatry and child and adolescent psychiatry. Physicians who have completed a core pediatric residency are eligible to apply. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates will be eligible for and expected to take the board certification in Adult Psychiatry and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.


Our typical applicants are individuals who have recently completed their pediatric residency (within the past five years), or later career pediatricians seeking additional training/career shifts in psychiatry and CAP.
