A Four-Year Experience
The Icahn School of Medicine Residency Program in Psychiatry is committed to training compassionate, dedicated, knowledgeable, and skilled leaders in psychiatry.
Our challenging and supportive academic culture encourages residents to identify their individual interests and skills within psychiatry. This individualized approach is coupled with a breadth and depth of expertise in the clinical and intellectual areas within psychiatry. The richness of the educational experience at Mount Sinai prepares psychiatrists-in-training to become skilled clinicians, talented educators, competent researchers, and dynamic contributors to the future of psychiatry.
As such, we have created an innovative program in psychiatric education across all four years, including
- Opportunities for longitudinal research with active mentorship throughout the training process to allow for exploration and development of residents' individual interests within psychiatry.
- Exposure to an exceptionally diverse patient population across ethnic, socioeconomic, gender, age, and diagnostic categories
- Flexible scheduling to tailor residents' training experiences and promote subspecialization
- Experience of training under personable, accessible faculty with national expertise in subspecialty areas of psychiatry
