Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychiatry Fellowship

The United Council for Neurological Subspecialties (UCNS) accredited Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychiatry (BNNP) Fellowship training program at the Barbara and Maurice Deane Center for Wellness and Cognitive Health aims to deliver comprehensive training by leveraging a vast array of clinical, educational, and research resources that are integrated at the Mount Sinai Health System. In particular, the program takes advantage of the interdisciplinary nature of the Deane Center, providing access to training with experts from the disciplines of behavioral neurology, neuropsychiatry, geriatric psychiatry, geriatric medicine and neuropsychology, among others.

The Fellowship’s home department is The Estelle and Daniel Maggin Department of Neurology, the oldest neurology department in the United States. The Estelle and Daniel Maggin Department of Neurology is recognized as one of the nation’s three leading neurology departments for producing academic neurologists (Arch Neurol 2011). It is also ranked the 10th in the country by U.S. News for clinical excellence (2021-22).

The Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychiatry (BNNP) fellowship program at Mount Sinai provides a guaranteed one-year clinical training in the assessment and management of behavioral neurology and neuropsychiatry disorders. These disorders include Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders, Lewy body disease, frontotemporal dementia including behavioral variants and primary progressive aphasias, cognitive and behavioral manifestations of neurological illnesses including epilepsy, movement disorders, stroke, and traumatic brain injury, among others. The program includes training in advanced BNNP diagnostic and treatment modalities, such as neuropsychological testing, novel imaging techniques and neuropathology, as well as expert mentorship for the development of a focused clinical practice or a career in research, be it in the private or academic setting.
