Triple Board Program

The UT Southwestern Triple Board Program trains diverse physician leaders and prepares them to treat and advocate for the most complex child and adolescent patients with co-occurring and intertwined physical and mental health problems.

Triple board training provides synergistic training experiences that reinforce general principles and allow residents to work within multiple systems.

Our rich and diverse patient population and myriad of sub-specialty programming affords residents experience in caring for unique patient populations in hospital-based and community settings and prepares them to manage even the most challenging cases.

The residency includes:

  • 2 years of pediatrics
  • 18 months of general psychiatry
  • 18 months of child and adolescent psychiatry

Graduates of the Triple Board Program are board-eligible in all three disciplines and are prepared to practice in any one of them.

The training experiences enable graduates to provide complex care in integrated and collaborative care settings across the lifespan.

Our program accepts 4 residents each year.
