The well-established one-year fellowship in combined Consult-Liaison (C-L) Psychiatry and Medical Ethics at the University of Chicago provides a unique training opportunity. The University of Chicago is a center of academic excellence dedicated to the generation and dissemination of new knowledge in the clinical, educational, and research realms. Fellows are trained in the evaluation and management of a wide array of medically complex in-patients and out-patients at this tertiary level medical campus. Concurrently fellows have the opportunity to join trainees from all over the world for fellowship training in medical ethics at the renowned MacLean Center for Medical Ethics. This is one of the oldest medical ethics programs in the country and is staffed by a truly unique and varied faculty.
During fellowship, trainees are encouraged to generate new knowledge through participation in the many opportunities for interdisciplinary and interdepartmental research or train formally as educators through the one year MERITS program.
The goal of the combined University of Chicago C-L Psychiatry and Medical Ethics Fellowship is to develop future leaders of the proud field of C-L psychiatry, leaders who will work to the highest ethical standards
