The one-year Stanford Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry (CLP) Fellowship Program, developed and directed by José R. Maldonado MD and supported by a robust and diverse group of CL psychiatrists, offers advanced training in the field of Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry in both hospital and ambulatory settings with abundant clinical, educational, and innovative research opportunities. The Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry Fellowship received full accreditation by the American Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) since its inception in 2010.
The program allows the fellow to engage in a variety of required and elective clinical and research rotations as well as to engage in a wide variety of educational activities where the fellow can serve as a learner and as an educator. The program also allows each CLP-Fellow to develop his or her own unique strengths and interests. Every member of our core faculty is either CLP-Board Certified or eligible.
As of our 2023 – 2024 fellowship class, the number of fellow training positions increased to four clinical fellows. Fellows are allowed to choose a fellowship curriculum that confers them excellent training in General Consultation Liaison Psychiatry, but it also offers two optional sub-specialty tracks: Critical Care Psychiatry or Psychosocial Oncology (also known as Psycho-oncology).
Inpatient rotations include the General Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry Service, the Critical Care Psychiatry Service, and the Psychosocial Oncology Service. Outpatient rotations include the CLP Evaluation and Continuity Clinic, as well as various elective opportunities. Available rotations include: Neurocritical Care, HIV/AIDS Clinic, Women Wellness Clinic, Pain Service, Palliative Care Service at the Palo Alto VAHCS, Transplant programs, Pulmonary Clinic; GI Clinic, Psycho-oncology, and Clinical Research.
