Description of Program

The one-year fellowship in Consultation-Liaison (C-L) Psychiatry, co-sponsored by the Harvard Medical School Departments of Psychiatry at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and the Veterans Affairs (VA) Boston Healthcare System, aims to foster excellent clinical acumen and a strong appreciation for the interactions between Psychiatry and other medical specialties. Fellows will rotate through both inpatient and outpatient settings at BIDMC and VA.

Our program anticipates the needs of an aging population with complex medical, substance use, and psychiatric conditions. We will develop the future leaders of C-L Psychiatry in a unique, diverse culture that prioritizes teamwork and excellence. Fellows will have the opportunity to work with colleagues in various medical specialties, including Internal Medicine, Neurology, Transplant, Oncology, Ob-Gyn, Surgery, Critical Care, and Emergency Medicine. Fellows at both sites will also gain experience collaborating across disciplines and working in multidisciplinary teams. The opportunity to work in two separate systems of care will provide fellows with additional perspective on the varying roles of the C-L Psychiatrist and expand their skills as expert consultants to the larger healthcare system.

Two fellow positions are anticipated to be available in 2024-2025

Fellows will be appointed as Clinical Fellows in the Harvard Medical School Department of Psychiatry.

Fellows will also have a stipend for professional development and education.

No call is required. Moonlighting opportunities will be available, but not required.
