With the transition to the second year of training comes the expectation that our residents will show increasing autonomy and independence in the expression of their developing skills and competencies as child psychiatrists. We continue to provide an experiential teaching model where senior staff are present on-site at all times and are available to jointly see patients and families with our residents, but residents progress to spending more time seeing their patients and families independently. They typically initiate requests for ‘live’ supervision, much in the same way that colleagues provide second opinion consultations to each other.
The second year of residency training is designed to build in breadth and in depth upon the core skills and competencies that our residents began developing during their first year of training, and to allow them to pursue specific areas of their own personal interest. Our seminars, supervision, and clinical rotations are all structured and integrated to accomplish these goals; so that by the end of the second year our residents feel prepared to enter the field of child and adolescent psychiatry in the particular areas of their choosing. The mentorship that we provide from the very beginning of the two-year residency plays a critical role all along in facilitating each resident’s continued professional development and their transition to practice and other career choices.
The core clinical experiences of the second year are a twelve-month hospital-based outpatient psychiatry experience, a six-month community-based experience, and a three-month family court experience.
The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
