Program description

This is a one year fully accredited fellowship for those who have completed an accredited residency program in psychiatry. All fellows will have access to hands on experiences at various state hospital forensic units, court clinics, law school clinics, VA Hospital, the Defender Association of Philadelphia's Juvenile Justice Unit, and the forensic clinic at Penn where the fellows will assess civil and criminal cases under supervision. They will all have academic lectures of the core curriculum with literature and landmark cases by our faculty and present the results of their independent research at our weekly seminar which they will attend regularly. In addition they will follow Dr. Watacon, Dr. Ken Weiss, Associate Director and Dr. Annie Steinberg on private cases and observe testimony when available. They will also testify in their cases when requested. We are accredited for 4 fellows per year, but can take 3 fellows per year at this time
