Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Virtual Fellowship

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Center for Mental Health Services (SAMHSA/CMHS) and the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP) Virtual Fellowship is designed to familiarize child and adolescent psychiatry Fellows with public sector service and community-based child and adolescent psychiatry policy and practice.

The Fellows will receive an introduction into the operation of the federal government and AACAP, including issues related to federal and state programs for children who have mental health challenges. The selected Fellows will also have the opportunity to become involved with research and to improve their writing, evaluation, and presentation abilities.

The Fellowship is designed to inspire the selected individuals with a desire to become leaders in children’s mental health service systems and to encourage the Fellows to pursue careers in public sector child mental health services.
