Primary Care Psychiatry Fellowship

Primary care providers are on the frontline for the delivery of psychiatric treatment. However, many providers are under-resourced and often have suboptimal training to support most psychiatric care. The Train New Trainers (TNT) Primary Care Psychiatry (PCP) Fellowship lays the groundwork for expanding psychiatric education for primary care specialists currently in practice and providing the bulk of care for patients with behavioral health issues. This one-year fellowship is an invaluable opportunity for primary care practitioners to increase their confidence and skills in caring for mentally ill patients. Our non-traditional training program is primarily available for primary care providers working in internal medicine, family medicine, emergency medicine, OB-GYN. Past fellows have included MDs, DOs, NPs, and PAs. Full-tuition scholarships are currently available to cover the tuition cost of $15,500.
