PGY-6 Resident


Taylor Young, MD, MA, Neuropsychiatry

UMass Chan Medical School

Academic Interests: Schizophrenia, epilepsy, psychosis, multiple sclerosis, dementia, movement disorders, inflammation and immunology, psychotherapy, genetics/genomics and neurodevelopment disorders, language and natural language processing, biological and artificial neural networks, computational and clinical research

Personal interests: Spending time with my family and dogs (hiking, weekend road-trips, relaxing), gardening/yardwork, playing guitar, watching really bad reality TV

Aside from the UMASS neuropsychiatry residency being the oldest and most well-established of the combined neurology and psychiatry training programs, a major draw for me was Dr. B: it was clear he had created something special and that his passions for education, neurology, and psychiatry had been thoughtfully applied to the program's structure and that the residents were equally curious and passionate about neuropsychiatry. Aside from clinical education, UMASS has extensive and broad research opportunities. Even as a medical student, I found excellent support and mentorship for research programs across several departments.

What I like about Central Mass: There is a low cost of living, excellent local food, art, music, etc., easy access to larger cities like Boston, Providence, and New York, and easy access to nature and outdoor activities.
