A Day in the Life of a Public Psychiatry Fellow

A Day in the Life of a Public Psychiatry Fellow Now in its 29th year, the Public Psychiatry Fellowship of the New York Psychiatric Institute at Columbia Medical Center selects 10 fellows per year for its 1-year program (1). This award-winning fellowship trains future leaders for the public mental health sector. The curriculum (2) employs a combination of a didactic seminar series, management-problem-focused presentations by guest speakers, field trips, and supervision by fellowship faculty to instill the values and skills required for practice and leadership in the public sector. Fellows utilize the framework of the academic curriculum to carry out a series of presentations throughout the year that allow them to organize, implement and evaluate concepts that they learn during the year. The following account, written from bird’s eye view, details one fellow’s day at his field placement in a State Hospital outpatient clinic setting, with the aim of illustrating how the concepts taught by the fellowship find application in day to day practice. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Psychiatric Quarterly Springer Journals
