The University of Rochester is the home of the Biopsychosocial model, and the CL Psychiatry Fellowship integrates the history of the biopsychosocial model with cutting edge work in consultation subspecialties. The one-year CL Fellowship offers an array of unique inpatient and outpatient integrated and collaborative care services, including a type IV med-psych unit and other CL subspecialties - transplant, psych-oncology, neuropsychiatry, perinatal mental health, pain, psychodermatology - in addition to general CL.
There are required rotations as well as many opportunities for electives based on fellow interest. Fellows spend at least 3 months on required inpatient rotations including 1) the general inpatient Psychiatry CL Service, which has both a traditional consultation model and a proactive model, 2) the inpatient Medicine Psychiatry Service (type IV med-psych unit), and 3) the Transplant Psychiatry service at Strong Memorial Hospital. Strong Memorial Hospital is an exemplary teaching hospital with 886 patient beds and is the only Level 1 Trauma Center and quaternary care center in the region. Fellows also gain exposure to outpatient collaborative and integrated care during a required year-long outpatient rotation. Fellows may choose from an array of optional elective opportunities based on fellow interest, including but not limited to neuropsychiatry, epilepsy, neuroimmunology, toxicology, headache, palliative care, perinatal psychiatry, pain management, clinical ethics, psych-oncology, psychodermatology, and eating disorders. Educational experiences are enhanced by weekly CL lecture series, weekly departmental Psychiatry Grand Rounds, individualized weekly supervision with the program director, and protected time for a scholarly project suitable for poster presentation at the national level.
