Community Psychiatry Fellowship – Jacksonville, FL

The Department of Psychiatry is developing a unique fellowship training program in Public/Community Psychiatry that will be infused throughout the four years of residency training.

This fellowship is designed to expose residents throughout their training to the importance of looking beyond the prescription pad, utilizing multi-dimensional treatment to serve those experiencing homelessness during their path to recovery. Residents will learn about publicly funded systems of care, the importance of stable access to shelter and food, case management, and wrap-around services. Trainees will have the opportunity to work in the Sulzbacher Center, a national model for comprehensive services to combat homelessness, and participate in street outreach with the HOPE team. Training takes place in both Gainesville and Jacksonville, Florida.
