Jan 20, 2022 1:00 PM

Huntsman Mental Health Institute (HMHI) is pleased to announce this year’s official match results for the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship. The new fellows begin on July 1, 2022 and will receive training through the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry within the Department of Psychiatry.

HMHI’s successful academic programs are devoted to comprehensive caregiver education and training the next generation of exceptional physicians. The Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry includes over 40 full-time faculty members which provides fellows with diverse learning, mentorship, and research opportunities. Fellows receive a breadth of clinical experience by training at the Huntsman Mental Health Institute (HMHI), Primary Children's Hospital, and affiliated outpatient and residential/partial hospital programs.

We would like to recognize the many faculty and the current fellows who supported recruitment efforts and greatly contributed to filling all of our open match positions. Nationally, 41% of child psychiatry training programs and 24% of child psychiatry fellowship positions went unfilled.
