NYU Psychiatry Residency Electives

PGY I and PGY II residents have two weeks of elective time. Residents choose the elective experience based on their particular interests. Please note these electives are for NYU Grossman School of Medicine Psychiatry Residents only.

A large proportion of the PGY IV year is dedicated to elective time, and each resident develops a fourth year experience that is tailor-made to fit the individual resident’s interests.
