ACGME-accredited Psychiatry Subspecialty Fellowships

ACGMEaccreditedPsychiatrySubspecialtyFellowships.jpgAccreditation of fellowship programs by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) is a voluntary process of evaluation and review performed by a non-governmental agency of peers. The goals of the process are to evaluate, improve, and publicly recognize graduate medical education programs and sponsoring institutions that are in substantial compliance with the standards of educational quality established by the ACGME. Accreditation protects the interests of residents/fellows; improves the quality of teaching, learning, research, and professional practice; and benefits the public.
 
Our department offers four ACGME-accredited psychiatry subspecialty fellowships. 
 
The overarching mission of this program is to provide psychiatric physicians with advanced training in the skills, clinical judgment, and knowledge necessary to the practice of Addiction Psychiatry to enable them to assume leadership positions in the field. The one-year program consists of inpatient, partial hospitalization, outpatient, consultation, dual diagnosis, women specific, and opioid agonist treatment environments. Didactic training occurs through participation in weekly seminars. 
 
This highly competitive, two-year program based at Seattle Children’s Hospital is the only child and adolescent psychiatry training program in the WWAMI (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, Idaho) region. Training for this program consists of inpatient, outpatient, long-term residential, juvenile justice, primary care, and school-based consultation environments.  
 
Fellows in this one-year program develop and demonstrate expertise in the diagnosis and clinical management of common and uncommon neuropsychiatric conditions among older adults. Clinical training occurs at the Veteran’s Administration Puget Sound Health Care System, Harborview Medical Center, and UW Medical Center. Training experiences are tailored to the interests and background of each fellow.
 
The mission of this one-year, multidisciplinary program is to provide excellent subspecialty training in Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry by integrating broad clinical experiences with comprehensive didactic training, close clinical supervision, and scholarly time, allowing a fellow to pursue research and educational activities in a specialized area of interest​.
 
The following additional ACGME-accredited fellowships are open to individuals who have completed residency training in psychiatry and are offered by other departments at the University of Washington:
