Our fellowship in Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry offers a comprehensive clinical and formal didactic curriculum.


Fellows receive direct clinical supervision from one of the attendings on each case, consisting of a joint patient interview and subsequent discussion. You also have ongoing individual supervision with Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry attendings.


Fellows attend a half day of formal didactics every week. This includes a class on general CL psychiatry topics, a class on Professionalism and Humanism in CL Psychiatry, and ongoing research, teaching, and psychotherapy workshops.


Three times per week, you participate in Consultation Liaison Psychiatry Service Rounds to review and discuss all active patient cases. You also take part in Service Walk Rounds every week, rotating with members of your team to interview patients and discuss the cases in depth.

Our Consultation Liaison Psychiatry Service Journal Club convenes biweekly. Working under a faculty member serving as expert mentor, you select and review a paper relevant to the field. Trainees take turns presenting and fellows assist in coordinating the club.

The department holds weekly Psychiatry Grand Rounds. These include formal presentations, primarily by outside speakers, on the full range of psychiatric topics. Fellows are encouraged to attend Grand Rounds and are given the opportunity to develop and present at Grand Rounds as well.

Fellows are encouraged to take advantage of the myriad other academic and didactic opportunities available throughout Mount Sinai Health System. Such opportunities include teaching and leadership skills workshops presented by Mount Sinai’s Institute for Medical Education and Graduate Medical Education office and Schwartz Rounds, hosted by the Brookdale Department of Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine.
