Formal didactic seminars are specifically for Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry Fellows. Core faculty and others will provide these seminars.

  • Consultation-Liaison Lecture Series
  • Consultation-Liaison Clinical Pearls
  • Consultation-Liaison Clinical Monographs

Departmental Educational Activities

  • Grand Rounds – Jamaica & Flushing Hospitals
  • Case Conferences – Jamaica & Flushing Hospital

Research and Scholarly Activities

Each Fellow will be required to complete one research project related to Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry by the end of the Fellowship.
This must be a project worthy of publication. The Fellows will be involved in other scholarly activities, as well. These include teaching psychiatry residents, residents from other specialties, medical students and other trainees about Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry. Fellows are encouraged to become members of professional societies, participate in local, regional, and national meetings, and make presentations at these meetings.

Continuity of Care

Fellows will have an outpatient Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry experience by following patients in the Family Medicine Center at Jamaica Hospital. Fellows will follow patients on a continuous basis in this primary care clinic. They will have a separate supervisor for patients at these locations. Patients will be selected based on their interface with psychiatry and these primary care specialties.


Fellows will have designated supervisors at each of the training sites, who are part of the core faculty. In addition to formal supervision, Fellows will discuss each of the consults they do with one of the Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry Attendings. All Psychiatry Attendings will be available 24 hours through the pager system to answer any questions Fellows may have.


Fellows will be required to teach residents from the General Psychiatry Residency of Jamaica Hospital while they are on their Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry rotation. Fellows will teach formal classes, as well as provide informal teaching through supervision of the residents’ cases. Fellows will also teach other trainees rotating through the department, including residents from other specialties and medical students rotating through the department.
