Fellows will receive direct supervision from experienced faculty members, researchers, and leaders in the field of Interventional Psychiatry. Interventional psychiatry is a growing field that involves invasive and non-invasive brain stimulation technologies as well as novel pharmacological approaches.
Fellowship applicants must have satisfactorily completed an ACGME-accredited General Psychiatry residency prior to entering the program. The candidate will be board certified/eligible at the time of application. A strong applicant will have an interest in both patient care and clinical research.
