Description of Program

The Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry Fellowship at UT Southwestern has been accredited since 2007 by the ACGME. Our program aims to create leaders in CL Psychiatry in the areas of healing, education, and research. We expect our graduates to work in diverse settings and with diverse populations similar to the settings and populations we serve at UT Southwestern, and therefore one of our aims is to increase the number of underrepresented minorities in the field. We are committed to an atmosphere of support for our trainees that emphasizes their wellness, and we are committed to ensuring that the emphasis of our program is on training needs. Fellows are exposed to a variety of rich clinical settings (public, VA, and university hospitals) in our academic environment, and work with our large CL psychiatry faculty. Additionally, fellows spend either half a day or a full day a week in an outpatient CL setting, depending on their interests. Fellows have half a day a week for formal academic pursuits including supervision, didactics, and personal time for an academic project. As a CL Psychiatry fellow at UT Southwestern, you will provide leadership on interdisciplinary teams, have daily opportunities to teach, and be exposed to rich clinical experiences to sharpen your CL knowledge and skills.
