Description of Program

The training on the C-L service is centered at Westchester Medical Center. The fellows are assigned consultations and are supervised by attendings who round on the patients with them. The fellows have opportunities to see outpatients, whether following patients from inpatient to outpatient settings allowing continuity of care or evaluating patients in the primary care clinic. In addition, the fellows rotate through different services and participate in psychosocial rounds. These services include palliative care, high risk OB, neurology, pain, burn and liver, kidney and cardiac transplant.

The fellowship offers many areas in which the fellows can learn. There are different educational opportunities which include didactic classes, journal club, reading seminar, grand rounds and sitting on committees of the psychiatry department. Research opportunities are available in the department which allows the fellows to participate in an ongoing project or pursue an area of individual interest. Fellows also have the opportunity to specialize in areas of interest during elective rotations. Support and assistance from faculty are available, as needed. In addition, fellows will have the opportunity to learn about and participate in tele-psychiatry to affiliated hospitals.

The fellows receive formative feedback on an on-going basis, as well as summative evaluation at the conclusion of each rotation. A comprehensive semi-annual evaluation is provided by the Program Director inclusive of an assessment of the fellows’ competency-based milestones. It is the goal of the fellowship to prepare fellows for the rigors of academic careers as well as advancing their clinical growth. The fellows, in turn provide feedback to the fellowship through program evaluations, supervisor evaluations and participating in the Annual Program Evaluation of the fellowship.

Westchester Medical Center is located in the beautiful Hudson Valley of New York State, less than one hour from New York City. This area offers the cultural diversity of the metropolitan area, the scenery of more “upstate” regions and excellent schools. Salary and benefits are highly competitive, and there is no overnight or weekend call. There are opportunities for moonlighting. Housing available on campus (very low rent). Fellows receive meal allowance as well.
