Forensic Psychiatry Fellowship

Overview

The Montefiore/Albert Einstein College of Medicine (AECOM) Forensic Psychiatry Fellowship is a one-year training program in Law and Psychiatry offered by the Division of Law and Psychiatry. The program combines a comprehensive didactic curriculum with an extensive and varied array of forensic experiences. Our primary mission is to equip future forensic psychiatrists with the broadest base of forensic knowledge, skills, judgment, attitudes and values, so that they are fully capable of practicing all facets of forensic psychiatry in an astute, sophisticated and sensitive manner.

Fellows complete the year eligible for subspecialty certification in forensic psychiatry. They will be qualified to serve as experts in this unique and expanding area of psychiatry. Fellows will leave with an in-depth knowledge of:

  • Psychiatric evaluation of a wide range of individuals involved with the courts and legal system
  • The specialized psychiatric treatment required by those who have been incarcerated in jails, prisons or special forensic psychiatric hospitals
  • Legal regulation of general psychiatric practice
