The academic project allows dedicated time of 4 hours/week.
The fellowship offers a well-balanced mix of inpatient and outpatient clinical experiences including the hospital consultation-liaison service, integrated behavioral health teams in primary care, and collaborative care teams in specialized tertiary care clinics. These settings immerse fellows in evolving concepts of psychosomatic illnesses and new strategies for treating patients with somatic symptom problems, functional disorders, and medical-psychiatric comorbidity. Fellows have mentored opportunities to develop their clinical leadership and teaching skills, as well as dedicated time for didactics, self-study, and scholarly activities. Fellows may use ample electives to pursue their own clinical interests or delve into cutting-edge research.
