  • Telepsychiatry 
    Fellows will spend six (6) months providing weekly telepsychiatry services through the Veteran’s Administration (VA) Hospital and six (6) months completing a passport-style rotation through other settings and telehealth models.
  • Implementation
    The fellow will pair with a faculty member who has implementation experience to support the implementation of collaborative care in a community primary care practice.
  • Quality Improvement 
    This rotation includes an introduction to quality Iiprovement (QI), demonstration of how QI processes can be applied to current UW integrated care models, and provides an opportunity for active learning whereby fellows complete a QI project themselves.
