Description of Program

The UCSF Department of Psychiatry offers a one-year CLP Fellowship Program based at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Health Care System (SFVAHCS). This fellowship represents an exciting opportunity to gain expertise in inpatient and outpatient consultation-liaison (C-L) work, acquire advanced teaching and leadership skills, and develop clinical research interests in an academic setting.

The SFVAHCS is a 124-bed acute care center, with a 120-bed Community Living Center for rehabilitation and extended care, located at the picturesque Golden Gate entrance to San Francisco Bay. The facility provides primary, secondary, and tertiary care to residents throughout Northern California, and it is one of the main UCSF training sites. The fellow also participates in consultation-liaison activities at the UCSF Medical Center, a 560-bed facility that is distinguished by its integration of medical research and patient care, and its opportunities for clinical training.
