• This essay proposes a two-track fellowship program in child psychiatry that would allow persons to enter child psychiatry training from a background in pediatrics, as well as from general psychiatry. Such flexibility would attract fellows from a new "pool" of applicants and increase the number of qualified physicians whose primary interest would be the mental health needs of children and adolescents. In addition, the plan would promote sharing of resources from both fields of child psychiatry and pediatrics, resulting in numerous programmatic and administrative advantages.
