Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry Fellowship

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.

The Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry Fellowship is affiliated with Dell Med’s Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences.

Training Facilities

Fellows primarily train in a newly built, state-of-the-art medical center in addition to another inpatient medical center and gain further experience by providing telemedicine to hospitals serving greater Austin and the surrounding catchment area. The program provides flexible opportunities to train within a number of integrated ambulatory care centers, including selected subspecialty Integrated Practice Units and the consultation-liaison continuity clinic at UT Health Austin, the Livestrong Cancer Institutes and the Southeast Health and Wellness family medicine clinic.
