Public psychiatry fellowships: a developing network of public-academic collaborations.

Author information

Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and with New York State Psychiatric Institute, Unit 75, 1051 Riverside Dr., New York, NY 10032, USA.


In response to the expanding public behavioral health care system, a network of 15 public-community psychiatry fellowships has developed over the past six years. The fellowship directors meet yearly to sustain and develop fellowships to recruit and retain psychiatrists in the public sector. This column describes five types of public-academic collaborations on which the fellowships are based. The collaborations focus on structural and fiscal arrangements; recruitment and retention; program evaluation, program research, and policy; primary care integration; and career development. These collaborations serve to train psychiatrists who will play a key role in the rapidly evolving health care system.
