Psychiatry at Michigan offers fellowship training opportunities in several disciplines:
Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship
The Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship at the University of Michigan Health System has long been recognized as one of the nation’s foremost programs for training leaders in the field. Its rigorous yet flexible course of training produces clinicians with outstanding skills in diagnostic assessment, empirically-based psychotherapies, somatic treatment, and consultation. The section also enthusiastically supports residents interested in academic careers, research, and medical education, through faculty actively engaged in diverse research and scholarly activities. Child psychiatry residents may enroll in a research training track that merges research and clinical training.
Forensic Psychiatry Fellowship
The fellowship (residency) program in forensic psychiatry is a one-year, post-residency training program for psychiatrists planning careers in forensic or correctional psychiatry. The program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. Board certified (American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology) general psychiatrists in good standing who complete this program are qualified to sit for the subspecialty examination in forensic psychiatry.
Geriatric Psychiatry Fellowship
Our one-year fellowship program (PGY-5) provides a broad-based clinical experience in inpatient, outpatient, and nursing home settings, with unique multidisciplinary emphasis, in an extraordinarily rich academic environment.
Consultation Liaison Psychiatry Fellowship
The University of Michigan Consultation Liaison Psychiatry Fellowship is a one-year ACGME-accredited fellowship with a strong multidisciplinary emphasis, and a flexible schedule that is tailored to match the fellow’s areas of interest. At the end of this training, fellows are expected to be compassionate, knowledgeable, and astute subspecialists fully qualified to take and pass the examination for certification in the medical subspecialty of Consultation Liaison Psychiatry.
Postdoctoral Fellowship in Developmental/Clinical Translational Neuroscience
Candidates are being considered for a postdoctoral position in the laboratory of Dr. Kate Fitzgerald in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Michigan. We seek candidates with strong research backgrounds to work on NIH-funded clinical trial research using functional magnetic resonance imaging, EEG and EMG to examine how cognitive behavioral therapy modulates networks underlying threat reactivity and anxiety regulation in children and adolescents with OCD and/or anxiety disorders.
Postdoctoral Fellowship in Cognitive & Affective Neuroscience of Psychosis
Candidates are being considered for a postdoctoral position in the laboratory of Dr. Stephan Taylor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Michigan. We seek candidates with strong research backgrounds to work on an NIH-funded research project using functional magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic resonance spectroscopy to examine GABAergic function in the psychosis spectrum (early psychosis, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder). Research, training, education, and mentorship are offered in the context of the PI’s lab which interfaces with very active group pursuing mechanistic and translational research in psychiatric disorders in adult and pediatric populations, using a variety of brain mapping modalities. The clinical research in the lab occurs in the Program for Risk Evaluation and Prevention (PREP), which focuses on early psychosis. The lab is also engaged in treatment studies of psychotherapy, pharmacology and brain stimulation. The candidate will have access to state-of-the-art brain imaging facilities and computational resources at the University of Michigan. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in a relevant field (e.g. clinical, developmental, cognitive or social psychology or neuroscience). A strong analytic/computational background is highly desirable, along with prior experience in fMRI analysis. The candidate will also be encouraged to cultivate connections with other teams across the University of Michigan, such as Psychology and Biomedical Engineering.
If interested, please email a CV, statement of research interests and references to Stephan Taylor, M.D, University of Michigan Department of Psychiatry firstname.lastname@example.org; The University of Michigan is an equal opportunity provider.
Addiction Center Fellowships
Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship
The Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship Program is a one-year, clinical training program for psychiatrists interested in obtaining practical expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of substance use disorders. The program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), and successful completion of the 1-year clinical track qualifies psychiatrists to apply for subspecialty certification in addiction psychiatry from the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, once they have obtained their certification in general psychiatry.
Developmental Neuroimaging Postdoctoral Research Fellowship
This is a postdoctoral research fellowship position in developmental neuroimaging. The successful candidate will be involved in longitudinal functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies of children and adolescents at risk for alcoholism, other drug involvement, and other psychopathology. This position offers the opportunity to develop an integrated research program and enhance skills necessary for a successful academic/research career. Multiple-year appointments are available and dependent upon performance.
NIAAA (T32) Postdoctoral Research Fellowship
Since 1990, a postdoctoral research training grant from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), has allowed a steady stream of creative and productive junior researchers to receive specialized training with the Addiction Center at the University of Michigan. This program offers two types of postdoctoral training: post-residency physicians (primarily psychiatrists, but open to all specialty-trained physicians) and doctoral-level fellows (primarily Ph.D.’s) from a broad range of specialties in the behavioral and biomedical sciences. The program is normally completed within two years.
NIH Fogarty International Training Program Fellowship
Fogarty International Training Program for Substance Abuse Research Capacity Building in Ukraine is a postdoctoral fellowship program for early-career post-doctoral fellows. This program is designed to strengthen research methodology/skills, including the design and implementation of a research project that is implemented in Ukraine after the one-year program.
NIMH (T32) Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Geriatric Mental Health Services
The NIMH-funded (T32) two-year Postdoctoral Research Training Program is offered by the Mental Health Services Outcomes and Translation Section (MHSOT) in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Michigan. This program provides fellowship training in health services research involving older adults with mental disorders.
