Department of Psychiatry

There is a long and rich tradition of excellence in Psychiatry at the NYU Langone Medical Center. Since its inception, Psychiatry has grown into one of the largest clinical departments at NYU. It is rich in both clinical and research areas with current focuses on Addiction, Brain Aging, Trauma, Schizophrenia, and Obesity.

Because of the department’s dedication to excellent patient care and advanced research, it has a commitment to offer the finest educational opportunities. Weekly grand rounds provide the latest updates in clinical treatments and scientific research and multiple training opportunities have been developed for students, residents, doctoral candidates, and fellows.

The vision of the Department of Psychiatry is to become a leading academic institution in providing exceptional clinical care, conducting neuroscience research, elaborating community mental health issues, and training outstanding clinicians. We welcome you to visit our website and view our tradition of excellence that has kept us at the frontiers of American medicine and become the "best of the best" departments of psychiatry in the world.
