Description of Program

Founded in 2018 after transfer from University of Minnesota, the Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry Fellowship at Hennepin Healthcare preserves its academic connections to expertise in the Twin Cities while offering real-world experience in different active models of delivery of psychosomatic medical expertise. Fellows garner advanced clinical training in a diverse, multi-cultural patient environment. The fellowship includes rotations at three leading healthcare systems, each with teaching missions and research initiatives at the interface of psychiatry and other medical disciplines. We accept one fellow per year into this competitive program focused on teaching advanced psychosomatic expertise.

Our one-year program is ideal for those planning to practice as a consulting psychiatrist in a variety of settings from emergency departments to inpatient medical-surgical hospitals to specialized integrated outpatient practices. The curriculum begins with a series of months on the C-L teaching service at the primary site, Hennepin County Medical Center, while the longitudinal outpatient experience begins at the Veterans Administration Medical Center. The year ends with time on C-L Psychiatry at Regions Hospital where the service model trains the fellow to work alongside and in supervision of non-physician APPs along with rotating junior medical trainees in a real-world setting. In between, there are focused blocks of education in various areas relevant to consultation work including but not limited to Medical Toxicology, Emergency Psychiatry, Addiction Medicine, Maternal-Fetal Mental Health, Behavioral Neurology, Neuroimaging, Pain and Palliative Care, and Sleep Medicine. The curriculum has flexibility based upon trainee areas of interest, and many of the training settings offer opportunities for scholarly activity and relevant clinical research.
