Grand Rounds and Didactics

Child Psychiatry Grand Rounds is a division-wide educational activity. Directed by the division chief, Grand Rounds includes clinical presentations by the residents as well as clinical and research presentations by faculty and visiting academic clinicians. Topics include ethical issues in child and adolescent psychiatry, cross-cultural psychiatry, public policy issues, as well as current topics in child psychiatry.

The residency training program offers a comprehensive didactic program on Tuesday and Friday mornings. Didactics are a required part of training, and fellows are protected from clinical responsibilities during their didactics. Speakers include faculty selected from throughout the UCSD Department of Psychiatry as well as outside invited guests.
