Didactics Curriculum

Didactics Curriculum

Trainees and faculty participate in a weekly Academic Half Day in which fellows are not assigned to (or expected to cover) clinical responsibilities. Academic Half Day is devoted to case-based seminar series, faculty lectures, and Professional Development Seminar. Trainees rotate, presenting cases from outpatient, inpatient, and consult and liaison services. Lecture modules span human development, forensics, pre-school, consultation, systems-based practice, neurophysiology, and psychopharmacology. The program draws lecturers from Duke departments of Neurology, Developmental Pediatrics, Psychology, and other research faculty in addition to CAP faculty.   

First-year fellows also participate in two didactic sessions per week through Central Regional Hospital faculty designed curricula. Trainees participate in observed faculty interviews of children and a development guided lecture series.
