As a fellow in our Division of Psychosomatic Medicine, you are part of a dynamic one-year program, rich with training experiences in the inpatient and outpatient psychiatric care of the medically ill.
Your job is to provide consultation to general medical and surgical staff and their subspecialty programs, including organ transplantation, geriatrics, HIV, and neurology (including multiple sclerosis). You are supervised by eight full-time consultation-liaison psychiatrists throughout the year.
To gain extensive teaching experience, you may assist in training psychiatry residents and medical students. We encourage research and electives, and offer you protected time to take on these projects.
The Division of Psychosomatic Medicine is located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, on the campus of the 1,171-bed Mount Sinai Hospital, which has nearly 2,200 attending physicians, 700 residents and fellows, and 1,800 registered nurses. We maintain a close affiliation with Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and its Department of Psychiatry, also on campus. These relationships afford you many clinical, educational, and research opportunities, both varied and frequent, across the Mount Sinai Health System.
