Welcome to the UC San Diego    
Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry  Fellowship Program!

Our fellowship represents an exciting opportunity to gain expertise in inpatient and outpatient consultation-liaison psychiatry. Inpatient CL services include UCSD Jacobs Medical Center and VA San Diego. Outpatient settings include Primary Care Mental Health Integration (collaborative care), psycho-oncology, and the integrated pain clinic. The fellows will acquire advanced teaching, administrative, and clinical skills in an academic setting, with a focus on interprofessional collaboration and teamwork.


The Psychiatry Department takes great pride in our fellows and we feel we can provide a challenging educational experience. We hope our website helps with your questions. If you would like further information, please don't hesitate to contact us at (858) 267-1427.

For the 2020-21 academic year we will be recruiting two fellows, with rotations at the VA San Diego Healthcare System and Jacobs Medical Center, the new flagship hospital of UC San Diego Health.
