Why UTHSC?

Being the first Post-Pediatric Portal fellow has been a wonderful journey! I have been able to build on my experiences in pediatrics and to expand my scope of practice in mental health. The fellowship is three years long, which is comparable to most pediatric subspecialties. At the end of the fellowship, I will be board-eligible for both General Psychiatry and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, in addition to already being boarded in Pediatrics. I spend half of each year in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry rotations, and half of the year in General Psychiatry rotations. The faculty members of both divisions are very supportive and committed to teaching. The program itself is focused more on teaching and education rather than service; we are able to see plenty of patients, but there is also ample time dedicated to learning and didactics. Memphis is a wonderful city for training, since it is large enough to provide a wide range of clinical experiences, but small enough to be affordable and easily navigated. The fellowship program allows a good work-life balance, with hours similar to the outpatient pediatric primary care clinic where I had been working before starting the fellowship. I am very excited about the career opportunities that will be available to me after I have completed this fellowship.
