Public Psychiatry Fellowship

The Boston University Medical Center Public Psychiatry Fellowship is a half-time or full-time clinical and administrative training experience designed to expand a fellow’s knowledge base of public sector psychiatry. The fellowship may be combined with a Master of Public Health from Boston University School of Public Health; trainees completing the MPH program would participate in the fellowship half time.  The program can be tailored to the interest(s) of the fellow with rotations in many areas of public psychiatry including the Boston Emergency Service Team (urgent care, community based assessment, jail diversion, emergency psychiatry at Boston Medical Center), outpatient community services, intermediate care services, policy development through DMH Central Office, and an elective. The fellow would work closely with the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health and gain a broad perspective of the mental health care system. The goal of the fellowship is to develop leaders in public psychiatry.


Graduates or PGY4 residents from an ACGME accredited psychiatry residency program are eligible to apply to the fellowship.  Applicants must possess a full or limited Massachusetts Medical License by the time the program commences in July of each academic year.
