Psychiatry Observerships

Psychiatry Observerships

Two students talk in front of a poster presentation.

Columbia's Department of Psychiatry provides Research Observership (Shadowing) Positions for international medical students or graduates of training programs in medical specialties. The goal of this program is to provide international medical students with the opportunity to witness clinical research as an example of the American psychiatric medical system. The length of these experiences will be determined according to the activity selected.

Physicians wishing to gain observer status must first identify a mentor whom they wish to observe. Final approval is granted by the mentor if the applicant meets the necessary requirements.
