We are thrilled to announce that the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) Department of Psychiatry, in collaboration with the Veterans Affairs (VA) Boston Healthcare System, will be starting an ACGME-accredited One-Year fellowship in Consultation-Liaison (CL) Psychiatry in 2023. The fellowship will be one of only a very small number of ACGME-accredited programs affiliated with a large tertiary academic center and a VA Healthcare System. Fellows will rotate through both inpatient and outpatient settings at BIDMC and VA. Two fellow positions will be available for 2023-2024.
The Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry services at BIDMC and VA aim to provide future fellows with a strong appreciation for the interface between psychiatry and various medical specialties, including Internal Medicine, Neurology, Transplant, Oncology, Ob-Gyn, Surgery, Critical Care, and Emergency Medicine. Fellows will gain experience collaborating across disciplines, including Nursing, Social Work, Occupational & Physical Therapy, and Case Management, further expanding their skills as expert consultants to the larger care system.
Our program will focus on providing future C-L Psychiatrists with the tools and skills necessary to provide exceptional multidisciplinary care to patients in diverse settings while developing a wide breadth of specialized psychiatric knowledge.
