The goal of the Clinical Fellows Program is to advance ADAA's mission of improving patient outcomes through education and training of clinicians from all disciplines. It offers participants an exclusive opportunity to further their clinical training in anxiety, depression, and related disorders through participation in continuing education at the annual conference, and online through webinars and group consultation. A certificate signifies a specialization in anxiety and depression and a dedication to continued education through ADAA's professional education programs.
An exclusive benefit for ADAA’s clinical members, the Clinical Fellows Program provides an opportunity to participate in unique professional development activities, demonstrate a commitment to lifelong learning and to providing quality patient care.
Those selected as an ADAA Clinical Fellow benefit from opportunities to develop and improve clinical and decision-making skills, network with clinical experts and peers, and engage in robust exchanges of information.

Resources for Clinical Fellows
Pediatrician Outreach Project
Exclusive ADAA member benefit: How can we inform parents and pediatricians about child anxiety? Why spend hours of your own time trying to create material that effectively and concisely communicates the CBT based services that you offer your clients? Let ADAA do the hard work for you. Members can download and access an ADAA Pediatric Outreach PowerPoint presentation and a customizable brochure to help parents and providers learn more about anxiety in children. Both products summarize empirically supported treatment protocols for anxiety and related disorders. These communication tools will assist in facilitating richer working relationships and clinical collaboration with physicians in your community.
