School Consultation

All second year child and adolescent psychiatry residents participate in a school consultation rotation that runs concurrently with the public school year. The schools selected represent a cross-section of the San Diego Public Schools including both inner city schools and those on the periphery of the inner city. Emphasis is placed on systems consultation to the faculty, staff and administration of the school. In-class observations are a regular component of the consultation experience. Individual resident supervision occurs weekly throughout the school year.
