Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry Fellowship

The Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry (formerly Psychosomatic Medicine) Fellowship at Indiana University School of Medicine is an ACGME-accredited one-year program that accepts up to two fellows per year. Subject-matter experts train fellows to provide outstanding psychiatric care to patients with complex medical and surgical conditions, both in inpatient and outpatient integrated/collaborative care settings. This program nurtures a fellow’s professional development, enhancing skills in research, teaching and administration specific to each fellow’s unique goals.

Didactics

The Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry program creates an environment for fellows to explore various interests in psychiatry as they delve further into their expertise. Fellows have the opportunity to also participate in the weekly Consultation-Liaison seminar, monthly Inter-Hospital Consultation-Liaison Case Conference , quarterly journal club and other optional protected seminars.

Integrated Care

The Consultation-Liaison Fellowship program partners with Indiana University Health to bring the best integrated care to patients with comorbid and psychiatric medical conditions across the state of Indiana, as well as provide the best program experience for fellows. IU Health has invested in the Changing Health Outcomes through Integrated Care Excellence (CHOICE) program, a program designed to deliver integrated behavioral health in primary care settings. For six months, fellows will participate in the integrated care clinic one day per week. This experience will enable fellows to gain expertise in providing consultations in a busy primary care setting. Fellows will also have the opportunity to get involved in the teaching, administrative and research missions of the program.

Clinical Experiences and Elective Opportunities

Fellows in the Consultation-Liaison Program will have access to several opportunities to navigate their training in a variety of psychiatric subspecialties, like transplant psychiatry, pulmonary, palliative care, oncology/bone marrow transplant, gastroenterology, surgery, neurology, research, and child and adolescent consultations at Riley Children’s Hospital.
