Deeply committed to his field, Dr. Marmar is a renowned psychiatrist and researcher who specializes in post-traumatic stress disorder. He is a part of the team of specialists at NYU Langone Psychiatry Associates in New York, New York.

NYU Langone Psychiatry Associates care for adults who are coping with mental health disorders and emotional challenges. The caring and empathetic team of licensed psychiatrists and psychologists offers the most up-to-date and scientifically proven treatments for many conditions, including: addiction, anxiety, insomnia, manic depression (also known as bipolar disorder), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and schizophrenia.

The Founder of Steven A. Cohen Military Family Center at NYU Langone Health, Dr. Marmar treats veterans, including those who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, who have combat-related conditions. Internationally recognized for his expertise in post-traumatic stress, he also works with refugees and earthquake survivors.

“My research has led to breakthroughs in our understanding of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) through the study of police officers, soldiers in combat, veterans, and civilians who have been exposed to sudden, usually life-threatening events. By mapping out circuits of the brain, researchers in our Department of Psychiatry are also making advances in how we diagnose, treat, and prevent conditions like schizophrenia, addiction, depression, dementia, and traumatic brain injury” stated the doctor. 

Among his other positions, Dr. Marmar is Lucius N. Littauer Professor of Psychiatry, Director of the Center for the Study of Alcohol Use Disorder and Traumatic Stress & Chair of the Department of Psychiatry at the NYU Grossman School of Medicine. 

“At NYU Langone, we not only have expertise in treating mental health conditions, but our clinicians also have compassion and a commitment to patients that go far beyond simply providing quality care. I take the time to listen to what my patients are feeling. From so many years of supporting people dealing with mental illness, I understand and empathize with the pain they’re going through. I am deeply committed to developing a trusting relationship to help patients recover their sense of effectiveness and hope for the future” he noted.

In regards to his educational background, Dr. Marmar obtained his medical degree from the University of Manitoba, Faculty of Medicine in 1970. He then went on to perform his residency in psychiatry at the University of Toronto Affiliated Hospitals in 1976, his residency in psychiatry at the University of California – San Francisco in 1978, and his fellowship in psychiatry at the Langley Porter Psychiatric Institute in 1978.

“My father was a general surgeon, and I was always very interested in his work. While participating in an elective in cardiothoracic surgery as a medical student, I interacted with many people who were facing life-threatening illnesses. This stimulated my interest in psychiatry, and specifically in traumatic stress” expressed Dr. Marmar.

A national expert in post-traumatic stress disorder, he is board-certified in psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN). The ABPN is a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to serving the professions of psychiatry and neurology.

They conduct thorough psychiatric evaluations, develop treatment plans, prescribe medication, and evaluate treatment results.

An award-winning teacher and researcher, Dr. Marmar is currently the principal investigator of numerous PTSD-related grants funded by the Department of Defense and private philanthropic organizations. He conducts studies in psychopharmacology, psychopathology, psychobiology, quality of care, psychotherapy treatment and phenomenology of PTSD.
