Description of Program

We are excited to train the next generation of physicians in consultation-liaison psychiatry. Our fellowship focuses on the relationship between biopsychosocial factors and medical illness, advanced knowledge of psychopharmacology, and the multiple roles of an interdisciplinary team in the patient's treatment and management plan. Our goal is to provide opportunities, support, and resources to ensure our fellows can excel in their understanding of the dynamics of medical and psychiatric comorbidity, in their ability to manage complex care issues, and in their ability to provide effective consultation to medical and surgical colleges after graduation.

We are looking for applicants who share our curiosity and enthusiasm for clinical research in this subspecialty, and who are interested in developing teaching skills as well. Our diverse and highly qualified faculty provide fellows with opportunities to care for patients from a variety of populations in many different settings. In addition to working with teams in both hospital and outpatient settings, we offer elective experiences with our palliative care and addiction medicine programs.

We invite you to explore our program, contact us with any questions, and submit your application for consideration
