I received my medical degree from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, New York, in 1973, then completed my psychiatric residency at the Bronx Municipal Hospital Center in 1977. I was Board Certified in Psychiatry and Neurology in 1981. I completed my Psychoanalytic Training at the Psychoanalytic Institute at NYU Medical Center in 1992. After working first in the Department of Psychiatry at North Central Bronx Hospital, and then as Medical Director there, I became Deputy Director of Psychiatry at Bellevue Hospital Medical Center in Manhattan in 1997. In 2003 I moved to SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, where I am currently Vice Chairman of Psychiatry for Clinical Services, and Professor of Clinical Psychiatry. I have a long standing interest in the provision of care to chronically psychotic individuals in the public sector. My academic interests include an effort to relate psychosis to ordinary mental life, the challenge of engaging a psychotic person in a therapeutic relationship, and the 'voice hearing' experience.
