Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Program

About Our Fellowship

Meet our Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Program Director, Tara Buck, MD, and several of our current fellows who are part of the Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship at the OU-TU School of Community Medicine in Tulsa, Oklahoma. At the School of Community Medicine, we aim to recruit, retain, and develop a diverse group of resident physicians of the highest caliber who will be shaping the future of healthcare and improving the health of our community. We work in partnership with the largest hospital systems in the area, Hillcrest Medical Center, St. Francis Medical Center and Ascension St. John Medical Center, as well as providing community-based care in various clinics, specialty hospitals, and treatment programs throughout the Tulsa area.

Welcome to the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Program at the University of Oklahoma School of Community Medicine in Tulsa! We are the only fellowship training program within the Department of Psychiatry which has shown a strong commitment to training outstanding physicians for more than 30 years. We received our initial accreditation from the ACGME (Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education) in 2014 and have been fully accredited since that time. 

We have outstanding attending physicians who bring skills from varied professional backgrounds, are eager to teach, and serve as excellent role models for our developing child psychiatrists. 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 during the first year and receive psychotherapy supervision from other child psychiatrists, psychologists, and licensed therapists in the community.  The didactic program is comprehensive, largely seminar based, and includes all seven core faculty members as leaders.  Guest lecturers include psychologists, other community health providers and adjunct faculty.  Our faculty is cohesive, collaborative, 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 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 but understand this will not always be the case. It will also 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. In addition, this past year we opened a co-located pediatrics psychiatry consult clinic which is designed to help pediatrics residents increase their confidence in managing simple psychiatric problems they see in their patients.  We are also very involved in exploring innovative ways of delivering mental health care to the underserved in Oklahoma, and intend to develop a telepsychiatry clinic which could serve this purpose. We hope to encourage child psychiatrists who are interested in academic medicine and offer the child fellows opportunities to work on joint clinical research projects with faculty.  We also strive to include our trainees in our advocacy endeavors to expand access to mental health services for children in our state to help mitigate this overwhelming need.

Resident Curriculum

Year 1

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 two important community-based settings. The fellows spend the entire year dividing time primarily between the Consult-Liaison service at Saint Francis Children's Hospital and in a partial hospital program at Positive Changes which serves 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 a number of different school settings in the community.  The focus of psychotherapy in the first year is to provide experience in family management strategies and family therapy under the guidance of the faculty child psychologist.

Year 2


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. The fellows also spend time each week in a new and innovative Outpatient Pediatric-Psychiatry Consult Clinic.  In addition, 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, and LEND (Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Other Related Disabilities).fellowship opportunity as part of the neurodevelopmental clinic.  The residents also have ample time set aside for clinical supervision and psychotherapy opportunities and supervision.
