What sets us apart?

The EVMS Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship is an integral part of an unprecedented commitment to children’s mental health. With tremendous community support and involvement, Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters has developed a full continuum of care housed in the Children's Pavilion, a family-centered, state-of-the-art building for children’s mental health and related services. The clinical programs are fully staffed to ensure that innovative training experiences include integrated care and community consultation with a strong focus on interdisciplinary care and the role of social determinants of health. Through this experience, our fellows are ready to excel in the evolving role of child and adolescent psychiatrists.

See yourself in Hampton Roads

The Hampton Roads region that EVMS serves is a vibrant community with 1.7 million residents scattered across nine cities and five counties in southeastern coastal Virginia.

Miles of waterfront, historical and cultural attractions, parks and outdoor recreation areas, lively nightlife, seasonal festivals and family-friendly entertainment make it clear that there's something for everyone here in Hampton Roads.

At EVMS, we know life happens, and we want you to be covered when it does. That’s why we offer competitive benefits packages for our residents and fellows.

A supportive environment

Work-life balance is important during your fellowship, and we are committed to supporting our fellows throughout their time at EVMS. Through EVMS' Wellness Works program, our residents and fellows receive the same wellness resources as our faculty and staff.

In addition, our Resident Wellness program for residents and fellows gives you access to support groups, after-hours counseling services, running clubs, leadership coaching and more.

Promoting diversity and inclusion

Our training program diligently recruits diverse residents and esteems the unique value everyone adds to our residency family, our healthcare system and our community.

We believe medical training includes learning and teaching how to stand firm in opposing hatred and violence, thus empowering us to proudly serve Hampton Roads' diverse population, which includes minorities, economically disenfranchised individuals, transgender youth, immigrants and global refugees.
