Developing Future Leaders in Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry
The Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry Fellowship at Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin fosters the development of expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of persons with co-existing psychiatric and other medical illness, psychiatric manifestations of another medical illness, medical complication due to psychiatric illness, psychiatric complication due to another medical illness, and finally, maladaptation to medical illness.
The one-year fellowship provides advanced training in a rich variety of consultation-liaison care delivery models in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Immersion in traditional and contemporary delivery models, in varied clinical settings, uniquely provides fellows with the scaffolding needed to thrive along the full spectrum of collaborative and integrated systems of care.
The fellowship aims to provide fellows with clinical training, education and faculty mentorship opportunities, individually tailored to optimize growth toward becoming expert leaders in consultation-liaison psychiatry. Physician identity formation built on a framework of ethical responsiveness, integrity, empathy and maintenance of dignity for all patients is modeled and nurtured.
