Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist

Child and adolescent psychiatrists work in complex environments with multiple patients, they require a broad appreciation of biological, psychological, developmental and sociocultural issues affecting infants, children, adolescents and families. Thorough knowledge and careful use of the principles of evidence-based practice and outcome evaluation must be accompanied by a humane and ethical approach to the children, adolescents and families seeking care. Emphasis should be given to research-driven data and methods of practice.
