Community Psychiatry Fellowship
The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Washington School of Medicine offers a state-funded training program in community and public psychiatry through the Division of Public Behavioral Health and Justice Policy (PBHJP). This program provides training in consultation, public policy, administration, prevention, research and evaluation. There is extensive exposure to executive, legislative, and judicial developments, with fellows participating in the complex process that shapes public policy. Each training experience includes intensively supervised clinical placements in both community and public sector institutional settings.
This fellowship is available at the PGY 5 or 6 level. Psychiatric fellows in the PBHJP are expected to balance clinical, training and research activities. In general, fellows devote 60% of their time to clinical consultation activities, with 10% being given to training and 30% dedicated to research or policy development. These fellowship positions begin on July 1 and end on June 30 of the following year and may be extended for an additional year.
