Biography

Michael H. Bloch, M.D., M.S. graduated from Yale School of Medicine and completed his child and adult psychiatry training at Yale. His research interests focus on studying Tourette syndrome (TS), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and trichotillomania (TTM) across the lifespan and developing better pharmacological treatments for children with depression, anxiety and ADHD. His research focuses on developing better treatments for children and adults with these conditions particularly through clinical trials and meta-analysis.

Dr. Bloch is also the associate training director of the Child Study Center's innovative psychiatry residency program. The Solnit Integrated Program provides psychiatrists-in-training with the opportunity to integrate general, child and research psychiatry across all stages of their career and will be a major pathway by which the next generation of academic leaders in child psychiatry are developed

Donald J. Cohen Medical Student Fellowship ProgramConceived, designed, and implemented a highly successful program to promote medical student interest and education in child psychiatry through early clinical experience. Matched each participant with a child, their family, and their treating psychiatrist. Students attend clinical sessions, serve as emissaries between psychiatrist and family, and observe the child in the classroom and at home. Approximately thirty medical students from Yale participate each year. This program served as a model for similar programs later developed at several additional medical schools (University of Vermont, University of Maryland, Harvard, UC Davis, Mt. Sinai, Stanford, and Johns Hopkins) and through the AACAP at a national level2004 - Present
