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 psychiatric disorders in the context of complex medical illness.

The one-year fellowship provides advanced training in both inpatient and outpatient settings with the option to explore specialized interests across the clinical domains of the medical center.

The fellowship aims to provide fellows with clinical training, education and faculty mentorship opportunities to become expert clinicians and future leaders in consultation-liaison psychiatry. 

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

Training Facilities

Fellows divide their inpatient training evenly between two medical-surgical hospitals: Dell Seton Medical Center and Ascension Seton Medical Center Austin. The program also serves a network of outlying hospitals through telemedicine consultation.

Dell Seton Medical Center at UT Austin.

Dell Seton Medical Center at UT Austin opened its doors in 2017. It is the only Level 1 Trauma Center in Central Texas and the fourth-busiest emergency department in the state. Training here involves care of high acuity trauma, burns and Austin’s medically underserved and safety-net population.

Ascension Seton Medical Center.

Ascension Seton Medical Center is Austin’s largest medical/surgical acute care center and a major center for performing heart transplants in Central Texas. Comprehensive services for internal medicine, obstetric and gynecological, and advanced cardiopulmonary services, rotations here also emphasize solid organ transplants and bariatric care.
