Special Tracks in the Mount Sinai Psychiatry Residency Program

Our residency is constructed to allow all residents the flexibility to use abundant elective time to explore specific aspects of psychiatry and develop special areas of expertise.

There are three more formal tracks, two of them with a separate NRMP match number. These are described briefly below and more extensively on the hyperlinked pages.

The Psychiatry Residency PhD Track is specifically designed for MD graduates who wish to obtain PhD-level research training and pursue an academic career in psychiatry. This is a 7-year program that integrates PhD research with all elements of training in clinical psychiatry. If interested, please communicate that interest before setting up an interview appointment and note that it has a separate NRMP listing.

The Physician Scientist Research Track is designed for those who have completed their PhD training or other substantial research training. It offers maximal time for research over the 4 years of psychiatry residency training, done in one of the many Mount Sinai research laboratories or clinical research groups. If interested, please peruse the websites of various faculty members so that visits with them can be arranged on the interview day, or on nearby dates. This too has a separate NRMP listing. For those without a PhD but with substantial research experience, applying for both this track and the Psychiatry Residency + PhD track is allowed, and one may list both NRMP match numbers.

The Global Mental Health Track does not have a separate match number. Applications for it are made during the PGY 1 or PGY 2 years. Experiences and training, for psychiatry residents and residents from other fields, are overseen by the extensive Global Health Program at Mount Sinai.
