Psycho-Oncology Education & Training Institute

Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Psycho-Oncology Education & Training Institute is led by faculty members in our Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, a global leader in evidence-based medicine in oncology and the original home to this psychiatry subspecialty in cancer.

The institute’s goal is to expand training opportunities in psycho-oncology for psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, and social workers in the oncology setting. CME courses are taught by MSK faculty and open to enrollment by non-MSK providers.
