The Psychosomatic Medicine Fellowship Program at the University of
Colorado Denver School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council
for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The program is created for
graduates of ACGME-accredited psychiatry residencies who seek advanced
education and training in psychosomatic medicine and who seek to develop a
leadership role in the delivery of integrated health care in the inpatient and
the outpatient setting. Training takes place across two clinical sites, The
University of Colorado Hospital and Denver Health. These hospital systems serve
different patient populations and descriptions can be found elsewhere on this
website. Our residency and fellowships have a strong emphasis on
excellent teaching skills for medical student and residents.
Goals of the fellowship:
- You will develop expertise in the basics of psychosomatic
- You can choose between several elective tracks.
- Women’s Behavioral Health Track.
- Integrated community-based care programs
- Neurology (DBS and movement disorder clinic, epilepsy clinic and
treatment of non-epileptic seizures).
The Women’s Behavioral Health Track teaches the specifics of
caring for women across the life cycle. Fellows will rotate through medical
specialties such as adolescent medicine, OBGYN, and oncology. The
curriculum is available on request.
Each fellow is expected to complete a scholarly project that
results in a poster presentation or a paper for journal submission.
