CAP I and II fellows provide evening telephone consultation to residents in the ER who are evaluating children or adolescents. There is always faculty back up. Fellows do not need to come into the hospital in the evening.
Three free meals a day are provided by the cafeteria. When fellows rotate off campus, they may claim reimbursement for up to $25 a day.
Parking is free on the Harbor-UCLA campus but is difficult to find after 9:30. Parking is available on surrounding streets. At the UCLA Westwood campus, parking is $9-$11 a day. This is offset by the opportunity to buy groceries with the meal stipend.
Additional educational opportunities
The Child and Adolescent Division has Grand Rounds on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month. Outside speakers, faculty and trainees present topics and cases. Periodically, there are case conferences in which particularly interesting or difficult cases are discussed from a multi-disiplinary perspective. General Psychiatry Grand Rounds are held every week.
Moonlighting is permitted on an individual basis after the first six months. Fellows who have transferred from the Harbor residency program may apply to moonlight Friday or Saturday nights before six months into the child psychiatry fellowship. If residents from other programs are interested in doing this, they may talk to the director of the ER to see how to qualify for moonlighting.
Harbor-UCLA is accredited by the Joint Commission for Accreditation of Hospitals. The Training Program is approved by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education’s Residency Review Committee for two years of training. The fellowship is accredited through the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
