Our Training Program

Our training program in psychiatry is a fully approved four-year categorical program and is a major teaching affiliate of the State University of New York-Downstate Medical School.

Our expected residency distribution for the coming year is as follows:

3 PGY 1's
3 PGY 2's

As our Program expands we expect to hire three PGY 3's for the third and fourth year each.

The PGY 1 year includes six months of Inpatient Psychiatry, four months on the general medical floors and 2 months of Neurology at SUNY-Downstate.

The PGY 2 year consists of two months Inpatient Psychiatry, four months of Consultation/Liaison, four months Psychiatric Emergency Room services and two months of Substance Abuse.

Our Third year will be all Outpatient Psychiatry, 20% of which will be Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.

We project in our Fourth year to provide fascinating electives as Chief Resident, Research Resident in Clinical Trials and Community Psychiatry.

Our relationship with Medical Schools is a strong one. Medical Students from several universities complete their core rotation in Psychiatry at St. John’s Episcopal Hospital. The residents will be expected to assume an active role in teaching. We also provide a very comprehensive didactic schedule and many teaching conferences.

As a supplement to our broad range of clinical experience, the Psychiatry Program offers an extensive conference schedule. Our bi-weekly medical Grand Rounds often feature eminent speakers from major medical centers. We also provide a monthly Basic Science Conference. Speakers from SUNY-Downstate present the latest developments in bench research. There are monthly conferences in Neurology.

Residents at St. John’s Episcopal Hospital are actively encouraged to participate in medical research. Clinical Projects at the Hospital are on-going and opportunities for research and clinical trials are available through our Program.

The ancillary services provided at St. John’s Episcopal Hospital are extensive and efficient. These include 24 hour per day phlebotomy, transporters services and EKG Team.

In addition to the training program in Psychiatry, St. John’s Episcopal Hospital serves as a teaching site for Internal Medicine and for rotating Allopathic Residents in Rehabilitation Medicine.

St. John’s Episcopal Hospital is an equal opportunity employer. Please review this information carefully and submit your application and supporting documentation through the ERAS system.
