CMC Outpatient Clinic Rotation
The Children's Medical Center Outpatient Clinic, directed by Catherine Karni, M.D., provides ongoing care of patients who are discharged from the Psychiatric Inpatient and Day Treatment Services, as well as diagnostic evaluations and treatment for outpatients. The CMC Outpatient Clinic is a 12-month rotation for four days per week, during which Child and Adolescent Psychiatry fellows conduct evaluations and treatment of children and adolescents with a wide range of psychiatric disorders.
In this rotation, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry fellows will spend two hours per week in individual supervision with full-time and clinical faculty, in addition to morning didactics and teaching rounds. You will see approximately 2–3 new cases each week and have 4–5 follow-ups per day. Cases are carried throughout the rotation, with an appropriate disposition made at the conclusion of the rotation. You will carry over the long-term patients from your first year at Children’s.
