Training Programs

We are developing interdisciplinary training programs that will attract the best and brightest students, clinicians and researchers in the area of brain health for training opportunities ranging from translational neuroscience to implementation research. The Garvey Institute is developing the following programs:

A fellowship program in behavioral neurology / neuropsychiatry in partnership with the UW Department of Neurology. This fellowship will allow graduates of neurology and / or psychiatry residency programs to advance their skills in the treatment of degenerative brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Fellows will work at the Memory and Brain Wellness Center at Harborview Medical Center and over time, we hope to develop a cohort of experts who work well together to deliver exceptional patient care.

A one-year transitional internship for medical school graduates who would like an internship experience that prepares them for careers focused on brain health, ultimately leading to training in neurology, neurosurgery, or psychiatry. This program would establish a cohort of clinicians who train together and have a shared clinical knowledge base and experience in the foundations of brain health.
