The fellowship is incorporated into a one-year clinical training program at the Johns Hopkins Bayview and Johns Hopkins Hospital campuses. Graduates of ACGME-accredited residencies in general psychiatry are eligible for the fellowship. Supervised clinical rotations include (among others): 1) C-L psychiatry service, including dedicated half day on the burn-wound service; 2) community psychiatry outpatient clinic, with focus on niche area-focused case loads and 3) elective outpatient clinics. Elective opportunities offered include a choice of rotations through 7 core niche area paths (clinical areas of institutional expertise, and sites that involve high volume resident education). The paths include neuropsychiatry, collaborative care, ICU psychiatry, transplant psychiatry, reproductive psychiatry, HIV psychiatry and delirium quality improvement research. Additional electives are also offered in psychooncology and addiction medicine.
Structured didactics are provided on a weekly basis in conjunction with the geriatric psychiatry and neuropsychiatry seminar series. Opportunities for research experiences are widely available, and scholarly activity is an expectation of the program. Fellows also receive teaching opportunities including direct supervision of residents, medical and physician assistance students in addition to formal didactics in teaching skills. Close clinical supervision and mentorship for scholarly productivity is provided by the program director and key faculty.
