Public Psychiatry Fellowship

Recognizing the immediate and ongoing need for the development of a psychiatric workforce capable of supporting and serving in public mental health systems, UT Southwestern Medical Center and Metrocare Services jointly developed the Public Psychiatry Fellowship (PPF) Program.

The PPF is a one-year, non-accredited training program under the academic auspices of UT Southwestern's Department of Psychiatry and with the support from the Metrocare Center of Education and Research in community mental health.

We are looking for graduates of psychiatric residency programs who are motivated to enhance competency by ensuring the provision of recovery-oriented, evidence-based, and systems-informed services and who have the potential for leadership in public sector psychiatry.

Mission of the Public Psychiatry Fellowship

The mission of the PPF is to train emerging public sector psychiatrists to become leaders in the field, to provide state-of-the-art services, and to contribute to the academic literature through evaluation and research.

As a public psychiatry fellow, you will acquire the knowledge and skills to thrive in your career, and to improve upon the provision of care in the public mental health system.
