Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Job Description

Child & adolescent psychiatrists or pediatric psychiatrists are medical doctors trained to identify and treat psychological problems in children and adolescents. These professionals work with a range of young patients who are presenting symptoms and behaviors indicating various cognitive conditions such as, depression, antisocial disorders, autism, or attention deficit disorders. Child & Adolescent Psyche jobs involve treatment through psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, medication, and sometimes hospitalization to produce the best patient outcomes. Professionals in this field can find themselves working in hospitals, in-patient care centers, or may even operate their own private practices. Individuals working in 24-hour care centers may often have irregular hours, while private practice pediatric psychiatrists generally have more control over their schedules. Overall, the job can be very rewarding yet emotionally challenging, and really can make a difference in the lives of young patients!

Education Requirements for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

The training and experience required to become a pediatric psychiatrist is very particular and extensive. The first step is to acquire a bachelor’s degree in a related major such as psychology, biology, or another science in order to be admitted into medical school after passing the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT). Considering that medical school is very competitive, successful students really go above and beyond in order to keep their career goals moving forward. Next, a 4-7 year M.D./Ph.D. program is required in order to obtain a medical degree, along with two years of supervised clinical experience. After completing an internship and residency, it is necessary to obtain a physician’s license by passing the U.S. Medical Licensing Examination. Then, professionals must become certified in General Psychiatry through the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) — a certification that must be renewed every 10 years. Finally, a specialty certification must be acquired by passing the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (CAP) exam administered by the ABPN. Complete all of that, and you’re ready to begin finding child & adolescent psych physician jobs today with LocumJobsOnline.com!
