The Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry Fellowship is a one-year, fully accredited program designed to train academic Consultation-Liaison psychiatrists to be leaders in the field and to provide knowledge and skills in the field of Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry. A unique quality of the program is its ability to provide the fellow with a variety of educational and training venues.

Over the course of the year, the fellow will develop clinical knowledge and expertise in the psychiatric care of the medically ill or physically disabled patient. This will include crisis intervention and various forms of psychotherapy. The fellow will be exposed to the care and management of patients in a variety of settings including intensive care units, outpatient clinics, dialysis units and cancer care centers. 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. An important aspect of the program will be the development of teaching, leadership, and administrative skills as the fellow works with other health care providers in both inpatient and outpatient settings.
