Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry


Teaching assignment for the KJPP

The KJPP teaches primarily in medical studies, but also in the curriculum for psychologists and biologists. The KJPP is involved in the psychiatry track of the medical degree course, right through to the state examination (see below).

As a category A training center, the entire child and adolescent psychiatric training can be completed at the KJPP, whereby the broad basic training is supplemented by a wide range of special disciplines of child and adolescent psychiatry and clinical research. The further and advanced training is aimed at medical and non-medical professionals.

The KJPP represents the postgraduate teaching at the joint Institute for Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy of the University Hospitals of Basel, Bern and Zurich (IPKJ) and is represented in the management of the Academy for Behavioral Therapy in Childhood and Adolescence of the Universities of Fribourg and Zurich (AVKJ).
