Dr.Alaa Elnajjar


My name is Alaa, I go by (She/Her/Hers). I am an International Medical Graduate (IMG) from Egypt, where I had my first combined psychiatry-neurology training and earned my Master of Science (M.Sc.) degree. I am currently a Child Adolescent Psychiatry Fellow at Montefiore Medical Center/ Albert Einstein School of Medicine. I love academic psychiatry, being a teacher is part of who I am since high school. My interests evolved during training from Cross-Cultural Psychiatry and impact of immigration on Physicians' Mental Wellbeing and their children into using Digital Psychiatry to close the gap between the need for tele-psychiatry services in children and adolescents and the challenges to accessing technology among underrepresented populations."
