Description of Program

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.
