Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry Fellowship Program Description
Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry (CLP) encompasses the study and practice of psychiatric disorders in patients with medical, surgical, obstetrical, and neurological conditions, particularly for patients with complex and/or chronic conditions. Physicians specializing in Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry have expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of psychiatric disorders in complex medically ill patients.
The one-year Stanford Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry (CLP) Fellowship Program, developed and directed by José R. Maldonado MD and supported by 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 cutting-edge 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.
