Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship
Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences: Las Vegas
The University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine in Las Vegas offers the first and only child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship training program in Clark County. Our inaugural class kicked off July 2014. We interview applicants for two fellowship positions per year.
While the United States is facing a critical shortage of child and adolescent psychiatrists (CAPS), we are dedicated to serving Nevada by training a generation of highly skilled physicians. Our fellowship director, Dr. Lisa Durette is board-certified in both general psychiatry and child and adolescent psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. Dr. Durette has also been awarded Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association (APA) and has served in several leadership positions within the Nevada District Branch of the APA, including the role of president. In addition, Dr. Durette is appointed to the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Adoption and Foster Care Committee, as well as serves the role of alternate delegate to the Regional Organization of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
As a fellow at the School of Medicine, you will gain invaluable education, experience and training that will help you specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of thinking, feeling, and behavior affecting children, adolescents and their families. You will have the opportunity to work with area agencies that have the greatest needs — including the Clark County Department of Family Services and the Nevada Division of Child and Family Services.
