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 collaborative care, psycho-oncology, palliative care and women's reproductive mental health. 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 2022-23 academic year we will be recruiting two fellows, with rotations at the VA San Diego Healthcare System and Jacobs Medical Center, the flagship hospital of UC San Diego Health. Interviews will be virtual for the upcoming year.

​The faculty and trainees of the UCSD Consultation-Liaison Fellowship Program serve the diverse patient population of  San Diego. We recognize the value and importance of fostering a teaching and clinical environment that is welcoming and inclusive of all members of the community; regardless of race, gender identity, sexual orientation, creed, ethnicity or immigration status. Our program seeks to recruit candidates who reflect our commitment to embracing the unique and diverse community of San Diego which we call home.
