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

This fellowship represents an exciting opportunity to gain expertise in inpatient and outpatient consultation-liaison. Outpatient psychosomatic medicine settings will include primary care mental health integration clinic, oncology clinic, pain clinic and the women's mental health clinic. The fellows will acquire advanced teaching and leadership skills, and develop clinical research interests in an academic setting.


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 2019-2020 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.
