More Top Psychiatrists than Any Other Hospital in the Country
The faculty of the Departments of Psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medicine and Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons are leaders in psychiatric research and education and experts in their fields. Through our affiliation with two of the nation’s top universities, our behavioral healthcare providers engage in the pursuit of knowledge and the advancement of patient care. Every year, Castle Connolly surveys tens of thousands of practicing physicians across the country to highlight the nation’s top doctors, and NewYork-Presbyterian consistently features more top psychiatrists than any other hospital in the country. They are joined by clinical psychologists, social workers, psychiatric nurses, and other professionals who work as a team to provide each patient with customized care.
