Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship

The Louis A. Faillace, MD, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth offers a two-year, fully-accredited Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship program. Our mission is to produce skilled professionals who provide comprehensive and collaborative care for children and adolescents with psychiatric disorders. After graduation, our fellows go on to work in private practice, public sector and academic practices.

Our clinical experience is diverse and includes rotations across the full spectrum of mental health illnesses, from acute inpatient and residential treatment to outpatient sites, as well as consultation to medical specialists. Our collaborative patient care sites include:

  • UT Physicians Outpatient Psychiatry Clinic-BBSB
  • UTHealth Harris County Psychiatry Center
  • Memorial Hermann-TMC
  • MD Anderson Cancer Center
  • Devereux Texas
  • Harris Center for Mental Health and IDD (Community Psychiatry)
  • Children’s Assessment Center

We have research expertise in autism and other developmental disabilities, mood disorders, disruptive behavior disorders and substance use. Our didactics include problem-based learning, a technique based on adult learning principles to better prepare graduates for lifelong learning. We strive to create a supportive, nurturing educational environment, and place a high value on camaraderie among fellows and faculty.

UTHealth is located in the world’s largest medical center and the fourth largest city in the nation. Houston offers a unique opportunity to learn about children and families from a wide variety of backgrounds, gaining an appreciation for cultural influences on development. Houston’s incredible mix is reflected in our program’s multicultural patients, fellows and faculty members.
