Child Psychiatry Residency

The Division of Child Psychiatry provides three primary services. The first service consists of outpatient evaluations, consultation, and treatment to all children in the catchment area. The second service consists of inpatient treatment provided through the adolescent units, the School-age unit and the Developmental Disabilities unit at the affiliated hospital,Spring Harbor Hospital (SHH) , which has 40 child and adolescent beds.

The third service offers consultations to the Barbara Bush Children's Hospital at Maine Medical Center and to community-based agencies such as residential and day treatment centers for emotionally disturbed youngsters, public schools, and the Department of Human services. The Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Program has a training affiliation with Tufts University School of Medicine, participates in the Annual Glickman Symposium, and has a robust relationship with the Pediatric and Medicine-Pediatric residency programs at Maine Medical Center. CAP fellows participate in the Buddy System, a program where pediatric and medicine-pediatric residents are paired with a CAP fellow for shared learning experiences and collaborative peer support around each's specialty.

To carry out these services, and to aid in training, the Child Psychiatry Division has 25 faculty members, 10 MMC/SHH Child Psychiatrists, 8 community-based child psychiatrists, 1 psychologist, and 6 masters-level social workers. Child Psychiatry Residents receive a minimum of two hours of case supervision per week plus additional supervision as they rotate the various services.

MMC is Maine's only teaching hospital. Learn more about our residency programs.
