The Fellowship in Public and Community Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital is available for MDs to access advanced training during a PGY-5 year, immediately following their PGY-4 year. The fellowship is offered in partnership with the Division of Public and Community Psychiatry and sponsored by the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health (DMH). The fellowship is situated in the Lindemann Mental Health Center. The program emphasizes rehabilitation and recovery.
The fellowship’s curriculum combines evidence-based clinical care with emphasis on longitudinal treatment, mentorship, peer learning, scholarly work and immersive leadership training. We seek to prepare our fellows to become leaders within community and public psychiatry. As a fellow, you will be intimately involved in teaching residents of the Mass General-McLean Adult Psychiatry Residency Program, working closely with the PGY-4 community chief resident.
This one-year, clinical fellowship runs from July to June of the following academic year. We accept one fellow per year.
The Division of Public and Community Psychiatry harnesses resources both at Mass General and in the community to provide excellent clinical care, teaching research and system improvements for underserved and vulnerable populations with serious mental illness. We work with the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health (DMH) and a range of community mental health and medical providers.
We seek to understand the complex interplay between serious mental illness and the social determinants of health and recognize racism as a unique social determinant of mental health. We focus on those suffering from severe and persistent mental illness, addictions, trauma and homelessness.
