    hello all :
    Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions on how to change specialties.?I am a child and adolescent psych, foreign grad, harvard trained, trilingual and board certified. I am seriously considering going into peds this year.What is the best or the most successful way to approach this, which states and which programs to apply for?Sounds scary and overwhelming as I feel lost and discouraged. Thank you all!

    I wonder if you should check into the triple board programs to see if you could shorten the peds residency by using the training you already have. I think there are five programs now that triple board in adult and child psych and peds. Alternatively, pick the best peds programs and sell yourself as an amazingly well qualified applicant (it sounds like you are!) and just go for it!
