Forensic Psychiatry Fellowship

Welcome to Tulane Medical School Forensic Psychiatry.  Our division is affiliated with the Eastern Louisiana Mental Health System, Forensic Division located near Baton Rouge. We have a large forensic faculty with broad training experience. A Fellowship in Forensic Psychiatry is a one-year training program for psychiatrists who have completed a residency in General or Child Psychiatry. The fellowship is accredited by the ACGME.

  • We provide psychiatric service for the Eastern Louisiana Mental Health System - Forensic Division (formerly Feliciana Forensic Facility), a JCAHO accredited maximum security forensic hospital that provides inpatient evaluation and treatment of patients for the State of Louisiana.
  • Our staff provides services to the Orleans Parish Coroner's office and the FSTRA FACT (Forensic Assertive Community Treatment) team in the Greater New Orleans area.
  • We provide the psychiatric management of the New Orleans Forensic Aftercare Clinic of New Orleans, a forensic outpatient clinic that treats and monitors individuals who have been conditionally released to the community from court.
  • Many of our faculty serve on court sponsored sanity commissions to do competency to stand trial and criminal responsibility assessments for the courts.
  • Many of our faculty provide private consultations in a number of areas where psychiatry interfaces with the law, including dangerousness and risk assessments, custody evaluations, independent medical examinations, competency and sanity evaluations, and other areas of litigation.
