Hi! I’m Dr. Amy Mednick. I’m a psychiatrist,
and I run my own private practice on Madison Avenue in Manhattan, New York City. I use psychotherapy, psychopharmacology, and a cutting-edge technology called Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). TMS therapy helps adults experiencing depression and anxiety to find relief.
I have a special interest in the overlap between the humanities and neuroscience, which is reflected in my treatment and exploratory style in practice, as well as my enthusiasm for collaborative work between other fields. It also means I love to teach others, and so I lead lecture series for psychiatric residents in training, as well as social work and psychology trainees. I also utilize writing to further explore these overlaps and enhance dialogue between different disciplines, and between patients and doctors.
My passions for teaching and science earned me a chief residency in Psychiatry, and the Beth Israel Loeb Neuroscience Award while in residency. I enjoyed writing in college as well and won multiple MIT Boit Writing Prizes during college in the categories of essay, short story, and drama.
I received my MD with Distinction in Research from Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and a Bachelor of Science in Brain & Cognitive Sciences with a concentration in Creative Writing from MIT. While in college I was involved in both brain research and linguistic research. Later in medical school I did more interventional research, studying what types of lifestyle interventions would be most effective in an outpatient psychiatric population.
