Fellowship in Inpatient Adolescent
BC Children’s Hospital
Full Time Fellowship (1 year) – Start Date between (August – October, 2020)
Mental Health and Concurrent Disorders
BC Children’s Hospital (BCCH) Department of Psychiatry is pleased to announce the availability of two, one-year funded fellowships in child and adolescent, reproductive, or infant mental health. The fellowship may be primarily clinical or research-focused, but it must have at least a part time research or academic project included in it, equating to approximately 20% of the fellow’s time. Areas of focus may include any of the subspecialty clinics within mental health that are interested in providing this advanced training to a fellow.
This form is an opportunity for your unit/clinic to submit a basic outline of what kind of fellowship you would be willing to offer so that this information can be used to recruit interested candidates. It will be the responsibility of your clinic to identify learning objectives, provide the training experience in its entirety, supervise the research or academic project, identify the fellowship supervisor(s), and provide evaluation for the trainee.
Candidates applying for the fellowship can either have a medical degree and successful completion of a Residency Training Program and/or a PhD in mental health-related fields. This may include trainees from various health-related backgrounds (e.g. psychiatry, adolescent medicine, family medicine, psychology, etc.) but they must be interested in completing a full-time mental health fellowship within the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at BC Children’s Hospital.
To apply for this rewarding career development opportunity, please forward a letter of application, accompanied by a detailed curriculum vitae and names of three references to:
