Fellowship in Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry at Northwell Health

Our mission: 

To graduate consultation-liaison psychiatrists who are able to lead and heal at the intersection of psychiatry and medicine. 

Welcome to the Zucker School of Medicine Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry Fellowship at Long Island Jewish Medical Center and North Shore University Hospital. Since 1972, our psychiatry C-L services have been able to evolve, adapt and, most importantly, lead in educating trainees and fellows. We are proud of the accolades our program has received, including the 2001 recognition of associate professor Joseph Weiner, MD, PhD, with the Alan Stoudemire Award for Innovation and Excellence in C-L Psychiatry Education. Today, the C-L fellowship offers a robust training experience. Our fellows have access to the best of Long Island Jewish Medical Center, North Shore University Hospital and Zucker Hillside Hospital, as well as the whole of Northwell Health, New York State’s largest health system, providing them with the knowledge and grounding they need to act as a bridge between behavioral health and medicine.
