Medical Student Fellowship Program


Since 2002, the Foundation has funded a network of medical schools to administer the Klingenstein Medical Student Fellowship Program.  This Program exposes medical students to children’s mental health research, treatment and advocacy and encourages students to explore careers in child and adolescent psychiatry.  Recent research on the Program has found it enhances medical student’s knowledge and career perceptions of child and adolescent psychiatry and increases their match rates in general psychiatry residency programs.
