Mission statement

The mission of the Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry Fellowship Program is to prepare our fellows to become the next generation of leaders in clinical care, education, research and advocacy.

Clinical experiences

The fellow will spend four months at each of the three primary sites : Emory University Hospital, Grady Memorial Hospital, and the Atlanta VA Medical Center. These clinical sites include training in psychiatric consultation and management of medical and surgical inpatients and outpatients. Each medical center offers opportunities to work with a special populations of patients in a variety of clinical settings (oncology and transplant patients at Emory Hospital; HIV/AIDS patients at Grady IDP; and patients with PTSD at the VA).

Didactic experiences

There are weekly seminars and teaching conferences covering the full range of psychosomatic medicine topics throughout the year. In addiction to specific didactic sessions for the CL fellow, there are didactics and teaching conferences that are done in collaboration with Emory’s Geriatric, Addiction and Child fellowship programs as well as the Atlanta VA Quality Scholar’s program. In 2017, the fellowship program in collaboration with Vanderbuilt, UNC, UCSD, Hartford, Chicago and Michigan has started a shared seminar series in which we present and discuss topics specific to consultation liaison psychiatry. In addition there are daily teaching rounds where the emphasis is on diagnostic and interviewing skills, case presentations, short-term therapy, optimizing collegial relationships with other health providers, and professionalism. Considerable individual supervision is provided. Additionally, didactics of Emory’s Psychiatry Department are open to fellows– including bite-sized teaching, teaching conferences, grand rounds, etc.


Emory's Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry Fellowship is academically oriented and strives to create new knowledge in consultation-liaison psychiatry. Fellows will participate in ongoing research projects that focus on clinical care, quality improvement and clinical education. They are also encouraged and supported to develop their own research project that may pertain to their specific interests.


The faculty consists of psychiatrists who are board certified in Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry and have an extensive background of experience in clinical care, education, quality and scholarship. Each of our faculty is involved in the various clinical, didactic and research experiences of the program.


The annual salary for 2021-2022 is $73,026. Fellows receive the standard benefit package associated with being housestaff at Emory.
