Clinical Fellowships

Welcome to the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioural Neurosciences (DPBN) at McMaster University, located at the St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton, West 5th Campus. The DPBN clinical fellowships program offers a wide variety of clinical fellowships with excellent, dedicated clinical supervisors and teachers. Our clinical fellowships are primarily located in Hamilton and, depending on the clinical fellowship, are situated in a hospital setting, community setting or both.

Clinical fellowship programs commence on July 1 each year and end on June 30 (the academic year). Clinical fellowships are offered for one year, with the option to extend to a second year when available, and upon approval by the corresponding clinical fellowship program director and the department clinical fellowships director.

Please use the fellowship application for more information on how to apply, required documentation and to submit your application.
