Triple Board Program

The University of Utah was one of the original six U.S. institutions that participated in a novel program designed to train child psychiatrists with a solid foundation in pediatrics. The program integrates 24 months of core pediatrics, 18 months of general psychiatry, and 18 months of child psychiatry over a five-year curriculum. Physicians completing the program are board qualified in pediatrics, psychiatry, and child psychiatry. The continuity clinic experience for these residents has a strong emphasis on behavioral pediatrics. One half-day each week is spent in a pediatric continuity clinic, and the other half-day each week is spent attending a child psychiatry conference. A close collaborative relationship between the faculty of the Department of Pediatrics and the Department of Psychiatry underscores the commitment of both departments to this program.
