Psychiatry

Clinical and Academic Excellence

Our residency program provides an atmosphere which blends clinical and academic excellence with the delivery of patient care.

Department of Psychiatry


Albany Medical Center offers a four-year training program in general psychiatry, accredited by ACGME, with a complement of twenty-four residents. Our goal is to assure that each resident develops the knowledge, skill, and professional behavior necessary for the competent, empathetic, and independent practice of general psychiatry. This goal is achieved through a combination of broad clinical experience, a comprehensive didactic program, scholarly research opportunities, and a close relationship with dedicated faculty. The psychiatry faculty at Albany Medical Center is committed the support of the professional development of every resident.

The importance of the doctor-patient relationship is emphasized throughout residency and we provide extensive training and supervision in psychotherapy, as the foundation for psychiatric practice.
