Description of Program

The Weill Cornell Medicine (WCM) one-year, ACGME-accredited Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry Fellowship offers advanced academic and clinical training in consultation-liaison psychiatry, and leads to eligibility for board certification in consultation-liaison psychiatry.

We expect graduates of our program to become leaders in consultation-liaison psychiatry. To this end, we offer intensive training in diverse clinical settings, expert faculty supervision, an extensive curriculum of formal didactics, administrative/leadership experience, opportunities for paper publication and scholarly presentations, and teaching experience with medical students and psychiatry residents. Through close mentorship and our curriculum, Weill Cornell’s consultation-liaison psychiatry fellows will gain and perfect new skills as they gradually transition into independent clinicians.

Our program is part of a major academic medical center, New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell (NYP-WC). NYP-WC is a tertiary acute care general hospital and level 1 trauma center with 862 beds located in New York City. We serve a diverse array of patients from a wide range of socioeconomic, educational, and cultural backgrounds who often have a complex intersection of medical and psychiatric needs. The patient population includes adolescent, adult, and geriatric patients of each sex as well as non-binary/LGBTQIA patients, spanning a broad range of diagnoses. The hospital has specialized services/units for HIV (Center for Special Studies - CSS), oncology, bone marrow transplantation, solid organ (heart, kidney, liver) transplantation as well as an LVAD program, a 20-bed Burn Center, multiple intensive care units (cardiac, cardiothoracic, medical, neurological/neurosurgical, surgical), and dedicated hospice/palliative care beds. Our site also contains the Alexandra Cohen Hospital for Women and Newborns, exclusively focused on the unique healthcare needs of pregnant women.

Our general C-L service provides evaluation and management of admitted patients through the entire medical center. In addition to working on this service, fellows will also have the opportunity to rotate on our integrated care consultation team (embedded psychiatric hospitalist and nurse practitioners working in a proactive/liaison model), transplant services, HIV (CSS) and Collaborative Care clinics, and reproductive psychiatry. Most of these rotations will have both inpatient and outpatient components.
