Our postdoctoral fellowship program in clinical child and adolescent psychology offers fellows the best of both worlds: training from a strong academic approach that emphasizes evidence-based treatment within the context of providing complex clinical work in a community mental health outpatient setting.

Alongside UC Davis Clinical Faculty, doctoral psychology interns, as well as psychiatry residents and fellows, our clinical child and adolescent psychology fellows receive their advanced training and provide direct psychological services at the Sacramento County Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Services (CAPS) Clinic, which serves diverse Sacramento County Medi-Cal/EPSDT child and family recipients.
