Program Curriculum

Since its inception at the University of Kentucky, the Triple Board Program has been viewed as an integrated five-year training experience. The present curriculum is a result of trainee input with the goal of maximizing integration and minimizing difficult transitions between specialties. The Triple Board curriculum includes a Pediatric Continuity Clinic at the Family Care Center one half day per week for five years, in addition to a total of 24 months of pediatric rotations, 18 months of adult psychiatry and 18 months child and adolescent psychiatry.
