Fellowship Training Opportunities

Public and Community Psychiatry Fellowships

Public and Community Psychiatry Fellowships provide training in psychiatric leadership, recovery oriented services, advocacy, and program evaluation/services research. An expanding list of programs has been created, mostly in the past decade. Providing a combination of didactic and field experiences, these 1-2 year post-residency fellowships represent the gold standard for preparing psychiatrists for leadership roles in organizational settings, whose funding largely derives from public sources. Since, as revealed in a recently published survey of APA members, early and mid-career psychiatrists now spend more time in such publicly-funded organizational settings than in private practice, the value of training dedicated to working in these settings is becoming increasingly clear to psychiatric residents as they become early-career psychiatrists. While most fellows enter these programs immediately following residency, they are equally suitable for early and mid-career psychiatrists.
