Program description

The fellowship training program includes the following: weekly formal didactics, case presentations with faculty, outpatient forensic evaluations, supervised clinical rotations at a local jail and nearby prison housing inmates with major mental illness, auditing of law school courses, forensic consultation at the university-affiliated teaching hospital, and a research project congruent with the fellow's interest. Fellows will have ample exposure to civil and criminal cases. At the completion of the program, fellows will have had experience in the use of various forensic assessment tools (e.g, psychological and neuropsychiatric assessment). Faculty consists of four board-certified forensic psychiatrists (one is also a boarded child and adolescent psychiatrist), a lawyer, a forensic psychologist, and a child psychologist. Fellows participate in the teaching of psychiatric residents, medical students, law students, and other trainees associated with the forensic program, and also have opportunities to testify. Fringe benefits include travel support to the annual AAPL review course. Tampa is a vibrant city with great weather, a world class performing arts center, museums, major league sports teams, and Gulf of Mexico beaches a short drive away.
