Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Programs:
The Jay G. Hirsch Memorial Award was established to honor the late Jay G. Hirsch, MD who was a nationally known psychiatrist who impacted the field of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry for several decades. He was a strong advocate for suicide prevention; in 1983 he received the American Psychiatric Association Award for Excellence in Medical School Teaching and was a well respected and loved mentor, clinician, and child advocate. Thus, the Jay G. Hirsch Award was developed in his honor to continue the ground breaking work in the field of child psychiatry.
