Resident Life

Triple Board residents at Mount Sinai are incorporated into the social fabric of the pediatrics, psychiatry, and child and adolescent psychiatry programs. They also enjoy a separate, tight-knit Triple Board community.  Though our residents across years are in vastly different areas of their training at any given time, there are many opportunities to come together as a group, including:

  • Weekly pediatric continuity clinic
  • Twice monthly Triple Board lunch meetings, which include check-ins with program leadership and didactic sessions focused on topics that synthesize the fields of pediatrics and child psychiatry
  • Fall and Spring Triple Board retreats, which have included informal resident-to-resident mentorship sessions, zip-lining adventures, culinary tours of the Bronx’s “Little Italy,” and afternoons at a board game café
  • Annual Triple Board Summit
  • The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Conference


Mount Sinai has a strong commitment to resident wellness, giving trainees access to:

  • Wellness days
  • Mental health resources, with the option to be referred to clinicians who are not affiliated with Mount Sinai or Mount Sinai Psychiatry faculty for the sake of your privacy
  • Family and medical leave
  • Maternity and paternity leave

 Salary and Benefits

The salary is competitive with that of other programs in the New York City area and is determined according to training level. The Mount Sinai Health System does not use state funding to supplement hospital lines, but "moonlighting" to supplement salaries is permitted at the discretion of the training director. Salary levels as of November 1, 2021 are as follows:

  • PGY-1: $72,294
  • PGY-2: $77,028
  • PGY-3: $80,110
  • PGY-4: $83,314
  • PGY-5: $86,646

Residents also receive an annual educational stipend of $500 and an annual meal stipend of $720.

We provide health coverage, optional dental, disability, life, accident, malpractice insurance, and more. The Mount Sinai Health System makes every effort to provide adequate housing for residents and trainees. All PGY-1s who apply are guaranteed a housing offer. Resident staff accommodations are available in several modern apartment buildings within walking distance of your rotations. Amenities include 24-hour door attendant and intercom security systems, laundry rooms, and sundecks. Larger apartments are available to residents with families.
