Forensic Psychiatry Fellowship

The primary goal of this ACGME accredited training program is to provide forensic psychiatric fellows the opportunity to gain didactic knowledge and practical experience in Forensic Psychiatry in order to develop the skills necessary to practice the subspecialty in an ethical and scientific manner. The fellow will receive training and education involving administrative, civil, criminal, correctional, and legislative issues. He or she will learn the legal regulation of psychiatric practice and be able to provide expert psychiatric evaluation and treatment in both forensic and correctional settings. The program will also offer fellows the opportunity to develop their specific interests in this subspecialty, including research, child forensic psychiatry, neuro-law experiences with neuro-imaging in forensic cases, and to learn how to work effectively with forensic psychologists and other mental health experts in forensic settings. The program is fully accredited by the ACGME.
