The SUNY Upstate Medical University Forensic Fellowship is an ACGME and Association of Psychiatry and Law approved one year full-time fellowship with a unique, close collaboration with the College of Law at Syracuse University that prepares the psychiatrist for a potential career in forensic psychiatry, a medical subspecialty where mental health intersects with the law.

It includes consultation, research and clinical practice in the many areas in which psychiatry is applied to legal issues. Besides a strong didactic program, fellows enjoy a rich clinical experience with a wide range of patients at the Central New York Psychiatric Center, the Justice Center, and the state and county court system.
