Fellowships

The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Minnesota offers six fellowship programs:

The goal of the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship is to train child psychiatry fellows to diagnose and treat mental illness in children from infancy through 18 years of age and their families.

The program consists of a 12 month clinical fellowship based in the transdisciplinary Neuromodulation section of the corresponding Clinical Department at the UMMS. It is comprised of clinical exposure, didactic sessions, teaching, and clinical, translational and basic science research. The Neuromodulation Fellowship will provide neuromodulation services for both outpatient and inpatient services at UMMC.

Forensic Psychiatry Fellows develop the skills, knowledge, and attitudes leading to proficiency in:psychiatric expertise in legal matters; systems issues involved in mental health care delivery to forensic populations; and legal regulation of psychiatric practice.

This one-year program focuses on "primary care" aspects of addiction medicine, rather than addiction psychiatry as a subspecialty of psychiatry.

The goal of the addiction psychiatry program is to train psychiatrists skilled in the recognition, assessment, and treatment of persons with substance use disorders whether alone or in combination with other psychiatric and medical disorders.

The University of Minnesota Geropsychiatry Fellowship offers an ACGME accredited, one year fellowship which emphasizes building expertise in diagnosis and treatment, integration with geriatric medicine and use of a multidisciplinary team approach to care.
