The Albert Einstein College of Medicine Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences offers an academic program unparalleled with regard to our dedication to professional growth and personal development. We are committed to creating and maintaining an atmosphere consistent with the finest tradition of post-graduate education: self-determination. We provide unprecedented blocks of elective time, highly specialized teaching, individual training, and research opportunities. The time and nature of the service requirements are determined within the educational framework.
In our academic community, divergent opinions are fostered and channeled into a constructive discourse. And an enthusiastic, collegial faculty provides the cutting edge of the most current innovations in education and basic and clinical research without compromising time-tested wisdom and traditional knowledge. Intellectual freedom in a tolerant "family" atmosphere is the long-standing and honored tradition at Einstein.
Academic excellence, personal diversity, and individual attention to academic and formational needs are the central tenets of our program. It is designed to help you actualize your being and becoming, because ultimately, all technical and professional skills are contextually tailored manifestations of one's self.
