Integrated Care Fellowship

The Integrated Care Fellowship offered at the UW Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences is a unique opportunity to learn how to provide integrated care through delivery of consultation to non-mental health settings (such as primary care), provision of telepsychiatry, and leadership to improve systems of care. The fellowship offers up to five positions per year.
The one year fellowship will include a combination of clinical experiences, training in integrated care implementation, and integrated care scholarship. Training activities will focus on:

There will be an emphasis on how to leverage psychiatric expertise through working with other providers.

Interested fellows can also work in community mental health settings, delivering and/or developing systems to provide primary medical care for chronically mentally ill individuals.
