Welcome prospective trainees in Child Psychiatry!
NewYork-Presybterian Hospital (NYPH) in conjunction with the Departments of Psychiatry at Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons and Weill Cornell Medical School offers a two year, fully accredited training program in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. This unique bi-departmental training program accepts 12 residents each year. In addition, the program in conjunction with the New York State Office of Mental Health and Queens Children's Psychiatric Center accepts two additional residents each year in a specialized child psychiatry track. This specialized track meets all the Residency Review Committee requirements in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry while providing more experiences in the area of community and public psychiatry.
The merger of the teaching hospitals of Cornell and Columbia into NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital provided Weill Cornell Medical College and the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons with many exciting possibilities for collaboration. The Departments of Psychiatry of these esteemed medical colleges were leaders in taking advantage of these opportunities. One of the first examples of this collaboration resulted in the creation of the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Residency Training Program of Columbia and Cornell Universities. This innovative, bi-departmental training program evolved from the consolidation of three existing child and adolescent psychiatry training programs; two affiliated with the Weill Medical College of Cornell University and the third with the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. The vast resources of The NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, Payne Whitney Manhattan, Westchester Division, The Children's Hospital of New York, The New York State Psychiatric Institute, and Columbia and Cornell Universities, provide residents access to distinguished faculty and a broad array of training opportunities. The resulting residency has unparalleled academic, clinical, and research assets.
