The Hospital: The Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters (www.chkd.com), an independent 206 bed, state-of-the-art pediatric teaching facility for Eastern Virginia Medical School, is the only free- standing children's hospital in Virginia, delivers pediatric care to the 1.8 million people in Hampton Roads and sits in the charming Ghent area of Norfolk. CHKD has a vibrant residency program with 69 carefully selected pediatric residents (pediatrics.evms.edu/residency) and also trains emergency medicine, surgery and family practice residents, medical and physician assistant students as well as pediatric fellows.

The Division: Child Psychiatry, aka Child and Family Guidance & Consultation, is a division of the Department of Pediatrics and was created in 2008 by a child psychiatrist to: (1) provide child psychiatric services through a consultative collaboration with each child's primary care physician, (2) teach pediatric residents basic competencies in diagnosing and treating childhood mental illness and (3) serve as a tertiary care center for children who have not responded to community treatment. The CFGC practice also provides clinical experience for trainees in psychology, art therapy and medicine. On-call phone coverage is limited to CHKD as a consultant to a large cadre of social workers, who function as first-line mental health responders. As consultant, clinician and educator, the CFGC child psychiatrist is ideally leveraged to serve the greatest number of children.

The Area: Enjoy a wonderful quality of life and a very reasonable cost of living in Hampton Roads, which includes the cities of Norfolk, Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia Beach and Chesapeake. We enjoy a wide array of cultural activities, beautiful weather and the longest pleasure beach in the world.
