Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Residency

Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Residency

We are delighted that you are interested in our child and adolescent psychiatry residency training program—a collaboration among NewYork-Presbyterian, the Departments of Psychiatry at the Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons and Weill Cornell Medicine, and the New York State Office of Mental Health.

Our goal is to provide a relevant and comprehensive education in child psychiatry. This education occurs through a variety of clinical activities, didactic courses, and research experiences.

We accept fourteen residents each year into our program. Twelve residents are admitted to the Main Program, and two residents are admitted to the Community and Public Psychiatry Track, which emphasizes training in community and public psychiatry settings.
