This one-year fellowship is a collaborative program between The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and Case Western Reserve University (CWRU). Upon completion, fellows will be eligible for board certification in Public and Community Psychiatry through the American Board of Preventative Medicine.

  • Drawing from a network of more than 20 community mental health agencies in the greater Cleveland area, fellows devote up to four days a week to clinical work, a half-day per week to program development or administrative work at one or two host sites, and a half-day per week to didactics.
  • Site placement is matched to career goals. Popular areas of interest include: homelessness, serious and persistent mental illnesses, forensics, substance abuse, state hospitalization, veteran affairs and other treatment programs funded by county or state mental health boards.
  • As an alternative to local sites in Cuyahoga and neighboring Northeast Ohio counties, fellows may choose to arrange a placement in several areas throughout the state of Ohio, including Akron, Cincinnati, Columbus, Dayton or Toledo.
