Why Psychiatry Residents Choose Montefiore

Since its beginning in 1955, the Department of Psychiatry at Montefiore/Albert Einstein College of Medicine has trained hundreds of residents—including some of the nation’s most notable psychiatrists. Our Department was an innovator in the development of social and community psychiatry in the United States, and this aspect of psychiatric training remains central to our program. In addition, our program emphasizes a broad range of treatment and education, ranging from dynamic psychotherapy through advanced psychopharmacology and neuropsychiatry.
