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.
Recognizing the pressing need to cater to an aging population with complex medical, psychiatric, and substance use conditions, our program is designed to train the future leaders of C-L Psychiatry. We achieve this within a diverse and inclusive culture, emphasizing teamwork and excellence.
Fellows will interact and collaborate with colleagues across a range of medical specialties such as Internal Medicine, Neurology, Transplant, Oncology, Ob-Gyn, Surgery, Critical Care, and Emergency Medicine. This experience with cross-disciplinary teamwork and leadership is crucial to the development of a well-rounded C-L Psychiatrist.
Two fellowship positions are projected to be available for the 2024-2025 academic year. Appointees will be recognized as Clinical Fellows in the Harvard Medical School Department of Psychiatry and will receive a stipend ($10,000) to support professional development and education.
Our program respects work-life balance; there is no call requirement. However, for those seeking additional professional experiences, there will be moonlighting opportunities.
