This is a one year fellowship, based at New York Presbyterian Hospital Columbia University Medical Center, offering advanced clinical and academic training in Psychosomatic Medicine (Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry).

Other components of the fellowship include supervised research, teaching, graduated administrative responsibility, resident supervision, journal club, lectures, and classes.
