So is this okay to do? or does it act as a negative point?

I don't know, this is my first time doing it, too, but my resume already speaks for this itself and they'll see what I'm interested in so why hide it?
And maybe, some PDs actually have the same interests, and if not, it shows that your confident with your specialty selection as you already know what you want to do afterwards. I don't know, but that's what I would think at least (and I'm just a first time applicant as well, so this is just my personal opinion).

I think mentioning about fellowship will just show the PD how focused you are. I don't think it will have any negative impact. I am doing the same.

I think you need to fellowship first. When you complete fellowship then it will be a plus factor for you. When you applying to psychiatry then at first you will complete your Personal statement writing. We can help you.
