Psychosomatic Fellowship

Psychosomatic Fellowship
The Psychosomatic Medicine Fellowship is a one year fully accredited program designed to provide knowledge and skills, and to train academic psychosomatic psychiatrists to be leaders in the field of psychosomatic medicine. Our fellowship program was one of the first eight programs accredited by the ACGME and has been continually accredited since 2004.The Psychosomatic fellow will spend a total of six consecutive months full time at the Boston Medical Center and six consecutive months full time at the VA Boston Healthcare System. Both sites provide training experiences in Integrated Care with the fellow ans consult-liaison psychiatrists embedded in a primary care clinic. A unique quality of the program is its ability to provide the fellow with a variety of educational and training venues that include an ethnically, culturally, and economically diverse group of patients 

Over the course of the fellowship, the fellow will develop clinical knowledge and expertise in the psychiatric care of the medically ill or physically disabled patient.  This will include consultation and evaluation, integrated care, crisis intervention, and various forms of psychotherapy.  Clinical work is supplemented by a variety of didactic seminars and participation in multidisciplinary educational experiences that include clinical rounds, conferences, supervision and research activities.. Fellows are active teachers of Boston University School of Medicine students and Boston University Medical Center Psychiatry Residents. This one year program meets all requirements for Board Examination eligibility for Added Qualifications in Psychosomatic Medicine.
