I just started my adult residency, and I'm really interested in going into child psych. I'm not sure, though, what it takes to match into child psych. Is it board scores (step 3?)? Connections? Interest? Is Child Psych a competitive specialty? I'm in a major city, but I don't really want to stay at my home adult program (they have a child psych fellowship). There are a few other programs in the city. How can I position myself well to match there? Is it beneficial to fast track, or do programs not care?
