Department Profile

This is primarily a clinical specialty training, but each fellow also would have an option to participate in research or scholarly project, the nature and scope of which depends on the fellow’s interests. These projects can range from conducting an independent research project and publishing the results, to collaborating on an ongoing research project, to co-authoring a journal article or book chapter, to peer-reviewing others’ research or publishing a book review. The University of Illinois at Chicago is a nationally recognized leader in the field of women’s health and women’s mental health. It is a federally funded Center of Excellence for Women’s Health. The Women’s Mental Health Program is a winner of the American Psychiatric Association’s Gold Award for innovative mental health services, and the American College of Psychiatrists’ Award for Creativity in Psychiatric Education. The fellowship is a specialization offered to PGY4s and is not a formal, ACGME-accredited fellowship.
