We are pleased that you are interested in learning about the Psychosomatic Medicine Fellowship program and the Division of Psychosomatic Medicine. The information contained here will help you to begin the process. We encourage you to contact us for further information about our program.

The Division of Psychosomatic Medicine is located at the Mount Sinai Health System campus on the upper east side of Manhattan. The Mount Sinai Hospital is a 1,171-bed facility with nearly 2,200 attending physicians, 700 residents and fellows, and 1,800 registered nurses. The Division maintains a close affiliation with Icahn School of Medicine and the Department of Psychiatry, which affords our staff and trainees many clinical, educational, and research opportunities.

Mount Sinai's one-year fellowship in Psychosomatic Medicine (Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry) allows fellows to make full use of Mount Sinai’s outstanding resources. As a trainee in the Division of Psychosomatic Medicine, you will be part of a dynamic and vibrant program, rich with training experiences in the inpatient and outpatient psychiatric care of the medically ill.

Fellows provide consultation to the general medical/surgical services and subspecialty programs, including Organ Transplantation, Geriatrics, HIV, and Neurology/Multiple Sclerosis. Eight full-time consultation-liaison psychiatrists provide clinical supervision and didactics to psychosomatic medicine fellows.

Fellows who are interested in gaining more teaching experience will assist in training psychiatrist residents and medical students. We encourage research and elective experiences, and each fellow will have protected time for undertaking these projects.
