In conjunction with the West Los Angeles VA and UCLA, we sponsor a one-year ACGME-accredited fellowship in geriatric psychiatry. This fellowship has been active since 1991. Fellows participate in clinical rotations and receive didactic instruction at all three campuses. Experience in the community and private sector is also available through program affiliates. A strong emphasis is placed on the development of academic skills, including research training. Fellows are expected to carry out a research project of their own choosing under the guidance of faculty.
