Jarrett S. Fastman

Jarrett came to the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai after graduating from Oberlin College with a degree in neuroscience. Before attending Icahn, Jarrett completed a research fellowship in behavioral neuroscience at the National Institutes of Health and worked as a research coordinator in the ISMMS Department of Anesthesiology. He entered the MD program in 2017.

While at Icahn, Jarrett was accepted into the Patient-Oriented Research Training and Leadership (PORTAL) MD/MSCR program. He completed his Master’s thesis project at the Seaver Autism Center for Research and Treatment and published 3 articles in peer- reviewed journals including a first-author publication. During his first two years at ISMMS, Jarrett ran the free tutoring program at the Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center.

Jarrett would like to thank his family and friends (and dog) for their support, and the many faculty members at Sinai who have provided valuable guidance and helped enrich his time in medical school.

Jarrett will graduate with his MD and MSCR degrees and begin residency training in Psychiatry at The Mount Sinai Hospital.
