Child Psychiatry Rotation Sites
Our fellows receive hands-on experience on different psychosomatic aspects of Psychiatry. The Consultation-Liaison team provides services to the El Paso Children’s Hospital and University Medical Center of El Paso. This rotation gives an oversight to our trainees so they can learn to manage psychiatric illness in the context of medical comorbidities.
We contract with YISD (Ysleta Independent School District) and provide servicesto students enrolled in the school district through a comprehensive care center clinic. The clinic is covered by child and adolescent fellows, and provide services for medication management, as well as appropriate referrals for further services, including, but not limited to counseling.
We provide services to IHS (Indian Health system) for native Americans who are associated with the Tigua tribe. Working with the tribe is a unique aspect of our program, as it provides a diverse training experience to our fellows. This rotation allows our trainees to learn the cultural aspect of Psychiatry. The department provides services to both adult and children/adolescents. The fellowship program covers the children and adolescent clinic, and fellows are supervised by child and adolescent attending faculty
