Fellowship in Psychosomatic Medicine

C&L Team

The Stony Brook University Fellowship in Psychosomatic Medicine provides its graduates with the clinical experience, skill and confidence to function as leaders of psychiatric services for medically complex patients. Stony Brook is a world-class academic medical center and regional level I trauma center. In addition to training on our active hospital Consultation and Liaison Psychiatry teaching service, fellows rotate with a number of sub-specialized inpatient and ambulatory teams, including pain medicine, palliative care, oncology, and obstetrics among others. Fellows also train in psychiatry at the interface of primary care at the Northport VA Medical Center.

Approximately 70% of the fellowship training occurs in the hospital, and the other 30% in ambulatory areas. Fellows supervise more junior trainees as well as participate in research. The fellowship is one year, offers two positions, and eligible candidates must have completed an ACGME accredited residency program in psychiatry.
