Susan Samuels

Dr. Susan Samuels is an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medical College, and an Assistant Attending Psychiatrist at New York Presbyterian Hospital. She maintains a private practice specializing in child and adolescent psychiatry, providing diagnostic evaluations, psychopharmacology, as well as various modalities of psychotherapy for young children, adolescents, young adults, and their families. Her expertise in pediatric psychosomatic medicine is a result of significant experience working with acutely and chronically medically-ill children and their families, as they cope with the challenges imposed upon them both while in the hospital as well as on an outpatient basis. She is also a faculty member of the Psychiatry Consultation-Liaison Service, where she supervises residents who administer psychiatric consultations on medically-ill patients in the general hospital.

Dr. Samuels is board-certified in Pediatrics, Adult Psychiatry, and Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, her unique residency training being the impetus for her special interest in working with children, adolescents, and young adults coping with psychological stressors related to their medical illness. As such, from 2008-2012, she served as the Director of the Child and Adolescent Consultation and Liaison Services at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City.

Dr. Samuels received her B.A. in History and Science from Harvard University, graduating Cum Laude. Following her undergraduate studies, she worked at the National Institutes of Health as a Laboratory Research Fellow in the Pediatric Oncology Branch of the National Cancer Institute. She received her M.D. degree from George Washington University in 2003, and then completed the Triple Board Residency Program at the Mount Sinai Medical Center, serving as Chief Resident in 2007-2008.
