William Webb Fellowship Program

How to Apply

The Webb Fellowship Program is designed to support a select number of outstanding advanced residents and fellows in C-L psychiatry at an early stage in their career.

William Logan Webb, Jr., MD
Dr. Webb, from Psychosomatics obituary

The program is named for William Logan Webb, Jr., MD, FACLP, president of the Academy 1986-87. Dr. Webb had an impressive career in C-L psychiatry and was among the early strong advocates of its subspecialty designation. He was involved in the study of pain, became an international authority in psychiatric ethics, was a highly respected teacher, and participated in symposia concerning coping mechanisms in sick physicians. When terminally ill in New York City, he eagerly became an interviewee for medical students. In 1991, Dr. Webb was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal of the American College of Psychiatrists.

Dr. Webb passed away in December 1992 at age 62. For more information about his career and impact on APM, please see Dr. Webb’s obituary [PDF] in the May 1993 issue of Psychosomatics, authored by M.J. Martin, MD, FACLP, president of the Academy 1973-74.

Purpose of the Webb Fellowship Program

The Academy of Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry created the William Webb Fellowship Program to foster the career development and leadership potential of advanced psychiatry residents and CLP fellows via:

  1. Mentorship. Each Fellow will have two designated mentors: one from their sponsoring institution and one from the ACLP.
  2. Networking. Each Fellow will be provided structured and supervised involvement in the national CLP organization, ACLP.
  3. Sustained involvement. Each Fellow will be substantively involved in significant ongoing ACLP projects.
  4. Affirmation and consolidation of professional identity. Each Fellow will experience collegial interactions via ACLP and through exclusive Webb Fellowship educational experiences.

As leading C-L psychiatrists of the future, Webb Fellows will be especially well positioned to play key roles in educating non-psychiatric physicians who treat patients with psychiatric disorders.

The Webb Fellowship Experience

Mentoring

Webb Fellowships are one-year appointments. Each Fellow will have a designated ACLP mentor in addition to their institutional mentor. The institutional mentors will typically be C-L faculty psychiatrists at the Fellows’ home institutions. The ACLP mentors will be senior established members of the Academy.

Annual Meeting Attendance

Fellows will be expected to attend the annual meeting of the ACLP at the beginning and at the end of their year as a Webb Fellow. They will participate in a variety of activities, including:
