Information for student fellows

The Klingenstein Third Generation Foundation (KTGF) fellowship at UC Davis, established in 2005, is a faculty mentoring program that engages first year medical students in the field of child and adolescent psychiatry (CAP).  The program leadership consists of two to four senior medical student leaders and faculty program director Robert Horst, M.D.

Each autumn, the KTGF pairs first-year medical students with practicing child and adolescent psychiatrists who serve as mentors.  During the fellowship, you will meet at least monthly, work with children and learn about normal and abnormal development, and other mental health issues in children and adolescents.

Participation in the fellowship program also provides two other opportunities:

  1. A limited number of participating fellows (maximum 4) may elect an intensive, two to four week CAP summer clinical experience between their first and second year of medical school.  Summer stipends of $500-$1,000 will be available for participation. During this "mini-clerkship", fellows will attend clinics, in-patient settings, and clinicians' offices. They will meet weekly to present cases and review current literature, and will complete a summary narrative at the end of their experience.

  2. Fellows also will have the opportunity to apply for travel funds (up to $300) in order to attend CAP professional meetings and workshops.

For more details about the fellowship program and application information, contact Debra Matsumoto at (916) 734-5514 or the fellowship program director, Robert Horst, M.D.
