UPMC Western Psychiatric Hospital (WPH) offers the Visiting Fellowship in ECT course to practicing psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, and trainees from psychiatric residency programs with appropriate clinical credentials.

University of Pittsburgh Department of Psychiatry Residents and Fellows will participate in the didactic sessions during the Visiting Fellowship but will complete their practical experiences at other mutually suitable times. This decreases congestion in the ECT Treatment Suite during the Visiting Fellowship week.
