Psychosomatic Medicine

In the training of current and future physicians, we strive for excellence in teaching the practice of psychosomatic medicine. Our goal is to develop skilled and compassionate clinicians through our fellowship program. The program is academically based and is designed to provide a well-balanced educational training experience that fulfills the special requirements established by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). 

In September 2007, we received a three year accreditation from the ACGME. We are committed to top quality education. We combine superior patient care, strong teaching and quality research in an environment that will nurture intellectual curiosity, support personal growth and prepare residents for a successful professional career.

Experienced leadership, a cutting-edge formal curriculum, a wide variety of clinical environments, coupled with a dedication from the department, the hospital, and the medical school, all contribute to a top-notch training experience.
