Fegert, is specialized in top-level psychiatric treatment and research in neuropsychiatric disorders (e.g. ADHD, Conduct Disorders, Tourette Syndrome, Depression, Eating Disorders, Self Injurious Behaviour).
Research on efficacy and safety of medication treatment for psychiatric disorders in youths associated with ethical questions is a main focus of work.

In our outpatient clinic, we treat around 1700 children and adolescents a year.
