A shared mission to improve children's lives

The Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Program at Prisma Health and the Department of Psychiatry at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine is the outgrowth of a unique partnership between academic and public psychiatry.

Our partnership supports a general psychiatry residency program in addition to child and adolescent, forensic and geriatric psychiatry fellowships. We are fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and emphasize a multi-disciplinary approach to mental health service, community liaison service and public service, while promoting academic excellence and research.

Our program is a two-year course of study offering four positions each year. Fellows rotate on a children’s inpatient unit and an adolescent inpatient unit in a private and public hospital setting. Fellows follow outpatients in multiple clinical settings and learn to provide balanced care for patients, including both psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy.

What makes our program special?

The quality of the fellows in our program is outstanding.

  • Our fellows have been recognized with national awards and honors, including PRITE Fellow, APA Mind Games, the Laughlin Fellowship and the Rappeport Fellowship.
  • Our fellows present workshops and original research at national meetings.
  • One-fourth of our graduates pursue academic careers.

The priority in our training program is the quality of the educational experience for each fellow.

  • Each rotation provides opportunities for supervision that exceed requirements.
