Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Receives Continued Accreditation

The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso (TTUHSC El Paso) Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship program has received continued accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

The program specializes in training residents and fellows on how to integrate the biological, psychological, and social aspects of child psychiatric illnesses to deliver comprehensive treatment plans.

“This is a tremendous accomplishment,” said TTUHSC El Paso President Richard Lange, M.D., M.B.A. “I am proud of this continued status and what the department of psychiatry is doing to meet the mental health needs of the children and adolescents in our region.”

Physicians who participate in the program experience rotations in the most important areas of child psychiatry, including inpatient care, outpatient clinics, school consultations, service to community agencies, and treatment of child trauma.

The goal of the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship program is to provide complete training with an adequate balance between didactics, clinical experience, and research opportunities.
