The Forensic Psychiatry Fellowship is a one-year training program in addition to the four-year psychiatry residency that focuses on the intersection between psychiatry and the law. Fellows can expect to spend almost half of their time in the Forensic Psychiatry clinic. The program accepts two fellows per year.
