From the Chairman and the Program Director
Thank you for visiting the website for Harlem Hospital Center/Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons Residency Program in General Psychiatry. Our Residency program affiliation with the Department of Psychiatry at Columbia University College of Physician and Surgeon - one of the preeminent Department of Psychiatry in the world in terms of psychiatry research, education and clinical care coupled with the wide spectrum of clinical cases our residents are exposed to, make our residency program an excellent place to train.

The goal of our residency program is to train competent psychiatrists who are well educated in all areas of psychiatry to enable them pursue careers in research, clinical care or education while obtaining Board Certification by The American Board of Neurology and Psychiatry. This is a great time to become a psychiatrist and our department encourages motivated individuals who have and demonstrate a genuine interest in psychiatry and are devoted to hard work and life long learning to apply to our program.
