Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Program

Insert picture of Jana Bingman here

Welcome to the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Program at the University of Oklahoma School of Community Medicine in Tulsa! We are an ACGME (Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education) fully-accredited training program in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry within the Department of Psychiatry which has shown a strong commitment to training outstanding physicians for more than 30 years.

We have outstanding attending physicians who are eager to teach and bring skills from varied professional backgrounds. Our full-time faculty are all Board Certified Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists through the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology with clinical expertise in various areas within Child and Adolescent psychiatry.

The two-year child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship program at OUSCM is an innovative, well-balanced, and comprehensive training program that takes advantage of numerous community resources to offer clinical experiences in several settings. It represents the essence of the School of Community Medicine's mission to provide medical services to the underserved in collaboration with various community programs. This is one key factor which sets us apart from other similar small child fellowships.  During the first year, fellows will work with children and adolescents in a multidisciplinary partial hospital program, Positive Changes, as well as  provide consult-liaison services at Saint Francis Children`s Hospital.  Other shorter community rotations during the first year include pediatric neurology and observational visits to a variety of public and private schools in the Tulsa area.  Primary focus during the second year is on managing your own outpatient clinic.  Significant strengths of the program during second year include rotations in neurodevelopmental disabilities, community child mental health, forensics, school-based mental health services in Union Public Schools, eating disorders at Laureate Psychiatric Institute, and adolescent substance abuse treatment at Tulsa Boys` Home.  Our second year fellows also have an opportunity to participate in a full year of LEND Internship (Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Other-Related Disabilities) if they desire expertise in neurodevelopmental disabilities.  Fellows begin seeing their own psychotherapy patients early in the first year and receive psychotherapy supervision from other child psychiatrists, psychologists, and licensed therapists in the community.  The didactic program is comprehensive and led by the five-core faculty members.  Guest lecturers include psychologists, other community health providers and adjunct faculty.  Our faculty is cohesive and highly motivated to provide the very best fellowship training possible and to expand our impact on the delivery of quality mental health care to the children and adolescents in the Tulsa area and beyond.

Tulsa is a family-friendly, affordable city with a growing downtown, sports/cultural activities, and new state of the art public park The Gathering Place.  This makes it an enjoyable family friendly place to live and train.

Program Aims:

We strive to recruit to our fellowship competent general psychiatry residents at the end of the PGY 3 year or after graduation who have a sincere desire to improve the quality of life for children and adolescents with a wide range of behavioral health needs. We hope that our fellowship graduates will elect to practice in the Tulsa area or Oklahoma in general. We also hope to train child psychiatrists who are interested in academic medicine and strive to expand our ability to offer faculty positions to those interested in academic medicine. Also, it will be important to grow our faculty in the coming years, both in number and strengths, to meet the ever-increasing need for child mental health services in our state. We are also very involved in exploring innovative ways of delivering mental health care to the underserved in Oklahoma, such as the new Outpatient Pediatrics-Psychiatry Consult Clinic that is opening this month. We also strive to include our trainees in our advocacy endeavors to expand access to mental health services for children in our state as there is overwhelming need.

Resident Curriculum

Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

Resident Curriculum

First Year:

Our fellowship program is designed to provide higher levels of faculty supervision during the first year with increased responsibility for individual patient care as training progresses.  The first year of the child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship consists of diverse experiences in a combination of community-based and academic settings. The fellows spend the entire year dividing time primarily between the Consult Liaison service at Saint Francis Children's Hospital and Positive Changes, a partial hospital program serving children and adolescents ages 4-17.  Interspersed throughout the year are other experiences, including working with a clinic based pediatric neurologist as well as observational visits to about 15 different school settings in the community.  


Second Year:
The second year of our fellowship program consists of diverse clinical experiences with increasing autonomy and experience in specialty rotations.  Residents spend 12 months (roughly half-time) in the outpatient child and adolescent psychiatry clinic at the OU Schusterman Center.  Having twelve consecutive months in the outpatient clinic allows the resident to follow his/her patients over the course of the year for continuity of care. The OU Schusterman center psychiatry clinic sees a very diverse patient population, often with complex psychiatric comorbidities.  Several special rotations are embedded in the second year of training, including forensics, community child mental health, eating disorders at Laureate Psychiatric Institute, substance abuse disorders at Tulsa Boys Home, school based experiences, and LEND (Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Other Related Disabilities).   The residents also have ample time set aside for clinical supervision and psychotherapy supervision.

Bio
Dr. Martin began his medical career at OU “TMC” in Pediatrics. After a year in a teaching fellowship he opted to pursue Child Psychiatry, completing general psychiatry in Tulsa, then CAAP fellowship in Utah. He returned to Tulsa and over the next 20+ years, practiced in hospitals and RTC's while also maintaining a private practice. Throughout this time he was involved in volunteer clinical teaching with OU and OSU medical students and residents. The past 7 years were concentrated at Indian Health Care Resource Center in Tulsa, caring for Native American youth in a multidisciplinary out-patient setting.  Clinical interests have been broad, including “the usual” ADHD, mood and anxiety disorders, but also autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders, and including the interface between psychiatry and pediatrics and neurology.  Dr. Martin recently decided “complete the circle” by returning to OU (now “TSCM”) to be a part of the recently created Child Psychiatry program in hopes of contributing to the training and development of future Child Psychiatrists as well as helping to care for patients in various settings.

FELLOWS

DAVIS

Zachary Davis, D.O.

Fellowship Year I

Medical School: University of North Texas Health Science Center – Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine 
Undergrad: 
Abilene Christian University 
Family Life: 
I’m originally from Denver, then moved to Texas for college where I decided to stay to complete medical school. I still have some family in Denver, with others spread throughout parts of Texas. I married my wife, Julie, right before starting residency and we live here with our two dogs, Bailey and Cooper.
Hobbies:
I enjoy golf, video games, weightlifting, reading, and spending time with my church small group.
Professional Interests: 
I plan to practice full-time in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, though I am still exploring to what extent I might want to work in the inpatient or outpatient setting (or both). 
Favorite things about Tulsa: 
It was relatively painless to find a house that we loved! In some ways, it reminds me of Fort Worth (one of my favorite “towns” I’ve ever lived in) – it’s still a city, but without the congestion and traffic that tends to plague some of the more metropolitan areas. Having several inexpensive but well-kept golf courses was the cherry on top.
Reasons for choosing this program: 
I’ve loved my time here during residency – and the opportunity to do all of my psychiatry training under one umbrella, with excellent fellows and attendings that I already know fairly well, was too hard to pass up.

Medical School: University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center/School of Community Medicine 
Graduate School: Masters of Business Administration at Oklahoma State University

Family Life: I was born and raised in Stillwater, OK (Go Pokes!). I met my wife in Stillwater and had our first child, Nathaniel, this year. We also have a cat named Meow Meow who has traveled with us across the country and around Oklahoma.
Hobbies: Currently I am very interested in photography, techy things like building computers, travel, outdoor activities such as hiking, and spending time with my family. I enjoy almost every sport but primarily soccer in which I play on an indoor team weekly. I have a love-hate relationship with golf but try to find time out on the course with a goal of shooting less than 50 over.
Professional Interests: I am starting my Child and Adolescent Psychiatry fellowship and hope to help our youth in the future. I also have more specific interests of the use technology to improve health care delivery, agitation management, and suicide management.
Favorite things about Tulsa: I feel Tulsa is a hidden gem. It’s a small to mid-sized city with a communal vibe. It has an underrated concert and restaurant scene for its size. However, my favorite part is just how green everything is. I frequent Turkey Mountain for a quick hike but also enjoy going to the Gathering Place/River Parks and the Oxley Nature Center.
Reasons for choosing this program: I had exposure to this program from my time in medical school and residency and found it a pretty closely knit and supportive environment including co-residents and
