Forensic Psychiatry Fellowship

Forensic Psychiatry Fellowship

Thank you for your interest in Stanford’s forensic psychiatry fellowship program. Our mission is to train the next generation of leaders in forensic psychiatry embodying the highest standards of ethics, scientific rigor, scholarship, and professionalism. While adhering to all ACGME requirements for forensic psychiatry fellowships (e.g. for forensic knowledge and competencies), our program is unique in its focus on neurolaw. Fellows with such training will be ideally positioned to guide legal decision-making, ethical discussions, and public policies that center around questions of neuroscience.

Stanford University is uniquely positioned to train neurolaw specialists, given its outstanding depth and expertise in the fields of neuroscience research, medicine, law, public policy, and neuroethics.

Fellows participate in a wide variety of forensic cases and didactics with faculty, with an emphasis on cases involving the use of neuroscience in the courtroom, for example evaluating the strength and reliability of neuroimaging evidence in determining capacities and mental states relevant to legal questions such as mens rea, mitigation, and criminal responsibility.
