Albert J. Solnit Integrated Training Program

General Information

The Yale Child Study Center and Yale Department of Psychiatry are delighted to present their joint venture in residency training. The Integrated Child, Adolescent, and Adult Residency Program began training residents in July, 2004 and continues to grow as it accepts two trainees a year who have a strong interest in developmentally-focused mental health and intend to follow an academic career trajectory.

Our trainees have a wide range of clinical and research interests, from animal models to clinical trials and from autism to addictions, and represent the future leaders of child and adolescent psychiatry.

This program is jointly funded by the Yale Medical School and the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and incorporates six years of training that includes adult psychiatry residency training, specialty fellowship training in child and adolescent psychiatry, and more than 2 years of research training. Central to the Program’s mission is helping trainees consolidate their identities as both developmental experts and clinician-scholars dedicated to the advancement of the field. Our program is named after Al Solnit, M.D. the first Yale trainee in child psychiatry who also chaired the Child Study Center and, in retirement, was commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services for 8 years. Dr. Solnit is remembered as a superb clinician and educator who always emphasized the importance of a child-centered approach.
