Both inpatient and outpatient experiences are emphasized throughout the fellowship. Inpatient experiences stress consultation and liaison skill development. Outpatient experiences emphasize integrated care, continuity of care and honing skills to work with patients who have multiple chronic medical conditions and co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders within the medical treatment setting. Fellows have exposure to a robust inpatient proactive consultation service as well as outpatient exposure to collaborative care, integrated, and co-located clinic models.
The educational program consists of seminars, case conferences, and individual supervision provided for all clinical activities. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to participate in the ambulatory psychiatry training program for internal medicine residents, as well as teach medical students and psychiatry residents. There is protected time for didactics.
There is protected time to complete a research project. Each fellow will receive direct supervision from the program directors for an ongoing research project. Three of the five most recent fellows have published an article or book chapter during fellowship or within the first year post-fellowship training.
