Message from the Fellowship Program Director
Katrina Burns, MD
Assistant Professor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
Program Director, Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry Fellowship
RUSH University Medical Center is a place that feels like home—welcoming, warm, inclusive, and a place where you are valued and recognized. We cherish this and many other distinguishing aspects about RUSH. Our consultation-liaison attending physicians place an emphasis on mentorship and the fellow’s personal goals in education and development as a psychiatrist. Our diverse and clinically robust educational curriculum possesses the ingredients needed to produce a C-L Psychiatrist that is academically and clinically well-rounded, confident, collaborative and compassionate. A few highlights of our fellowship include customizable selective opportunities that facilitate experience and knowledge acquisition in a variety of sub-specialties in C-L Psychiatry; weekly protected time for non-clinical supervision and board examination preparation; faculty with broad areas of expertise; and an opportunity to see complex and rare conditions in a setting that is nationally distinguished for quality and excellence of care.
Our welcome message would not be complete without highlighting our most recent accomplishments as a Medical Center:
