Clinician Educator Fellowship

Advanced Specialty Training Program in Psychiatry Research Clinician Educator Fellowship

The mission of the fellowship is for participants to develop the knowledge, attitudes, and skills required to become effective, productive, and successful psychiatry clinician educators. The program takes place over one academic year at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.

Fellowship Curriculum

Fellows participate in multiple courses offered by the Johns Hopkins Bayview Office of Faculty Development, including the Longitudinal Program in Curriculum Development, the Longitudinal Program in Teaching Skills, and the ½ day Foundations of Educational Scholarship course. Fellows also participate in the Association for Academic Psychiatry (AAP) Master Educator Course, pending availability.

Fellows attend bi-weekly academic psychiatry didactics on The Perspectives of Psychiatry and the Phipps psychiatric interview as well as bi-weekly service rounds – structured one-hour sessions led by the chair of the department of psychiatry in which a patient is presented and interviewed – and participate in facilitated discussions of patient formulations using The Perspectives of Psychiatry.

Fellows will meet regularly with the fellowship director and additional mentors to discuss their career goals and ongoing educational projects.

Fellows will teach a weekly psychiatry didactic to psychiatry trainees in a topic agreed upon by the fellow, the fellowship director, and educational leaders within the psychiatry clerkship and residency training program. They will also attend for one month on the inpatient psychiatry unit and will supervise psychiatry interns in the care of inpatients. Fellows may choose to pursue additional teaching activities opportunities, as available.
