Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
The University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital child and adolescent psychiatry program is recognized as a leader in research, training, and clinical care. Many firsts in child and adolescent psychiatry have happened here. For example, our expert staff discovered the first genes ever identified for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autism. They also helped establish one of the world's most successful approaches to eating disorders.
Every day, our patients and their families benefit from the research conducted here on leading-edge medications and therapies.
