Dear prospective applicant,

We celebrate your choice to pursue fellowship training in Consultation-Liaison psychiatry!  In doing so, you join a thriving community of clinicians and scholars advancing care at the interface of psychiatry and medicine.  At Penn Psychiatry, you’ll find a dynamic community of inspired academic clinicians with a wide range of expertise.  In fact, the fellowship was one of the first in the nation to offer multiple sub-specialty outpatient training experiences.  Dr. Weinrieb designed the clinical fellowship by drawing on his over 20 years of experience as a transplant psychiatrist working in a co-located, collaborative care model.  Thus, there has been an emphasis from the beginning on preparing our graduates for a future of increasing specialization within the field.  Our program provides its trainees a robust set of outpatient clinical experiences, including Sleep, Oncology, Women’s Behavioral Health, Med-Psych longitudinal clinic, Transplant Psychiatry, Neurology, G.I., and Pain Management.  Fellows evaluate patients in these specialty clinics during a dedicated five-month block of time free of inpatient responsibilities.   Inpatient consultation at Penn provides a similarly rich training experience.  An 18-week rotation at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) and 14-week rotation at the Philadelphia VA Medical Center across the street from HUP offer an extremely diverse patient population including complex and unusual cases only found in similarly large Quaternary Care health systems.  Whether your post-fellowship ambitions lead you to academic clinical care and education, private or group practice, clinical research, or health care systems administration, we’re confident the C-L fellowship at Penn will prepare you for success.  

Warm regards,

Robert M. Weinrieb, M.D.
Program Director
Professor of Psychiatry
