Message from Directors of Triple Board Psychiatry

The Triple Board Residency Program in the Department of Psychiatry at IU School of Medicine is designed for physicians who want to understand both the medical and psychological problems of children. We value the importance of behavioral medicine, psychosocial issues, and mental health in the growth and development of healthy children in today’s world. Our program attempts to provide integrated, comprehensive training over five years. The first year will emphasize pediatrics while the last year focuses on outpatient child and adolescent psychiatry. Years two through four will offer a biopsychosocial, developmentally based training in both pediatrics and psychiatry.

The Department of Pediatrics at IU School of Medicine has been enthusiastically supportive of the combined residency program and the opportunity to strengthen our collaborations as faculty, researchers and educators as we work together in training new triple board physicians as vital providers in the future of children.

We are looking for adaptable, enthusiastic and bright students willing to accept the challenge of mastering three specialties. Our graduates should be well prepared for clinical and academic opportunities in pediatrics and child and adolescent psychiatry.
