The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry's (AACAP) Congressional Fellowship Program is an 11 month program for a child and adolescent psychiatrist to work on Capitol Hill in a Senator or Representative's office in order to educate policy makers and Congressional staff about children's mental health issues within the policy arena.
Working on Capitol Hill, the Fellow will have the opportunity to work with constituents, advocates, and congressional committee staff; draft legislation; brief Senators and Representatives; and participate in and plan Congressional hearings. He or she will also be called upon as the expert in child health issues and have the ability to influence the legislative and political process.
Donations to the Congressional Fellowship program support the honorarium and associated costs.
