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.

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.
