This program is designed for applicants who have a demonstrated interest and aptitude in psychiatric research, as it provides substantial protected time for research throughout residency training. While it is not limited to MD/PhD applicants, priority is generally given to those who have participated in substantial research activities prior to residency.

Program Description

Leveraging Mount Sinai’s culture of flexibility and innovation, we offer a wealth of raw materials for you to fashion into unique educational, academic, and professional experiences. We encourage new ideas. While we certainly excel in teaching the cores of clinical psychiatry, our research track curricula are to a significant degree emergent and individualized. We maximize flexibility, allowing for the growth of projects and independent thinking at an early stage. Beyond core requirements, we help you build your own experiences so that you can become a true specialist as a physician-scientist while you master the skills to provide the most effective treatments in your domain. Mount Sinai is a unique place to learn how to become a 21st century psychiatrist and scientist. Our top-notch faculty covers psychiatry’s ever-broadening field—including outstanding physicians in neuroscience, clinical research, and psychotherapy—and is unusual in that these divergent realms interact regularly, transcending the conceptual barriers that often separate “biological” models of mental illness from “mind.”
