Kelly Brogan


As an undergraduate at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Kelly Brogan, MD, studied Cognitive Neuroscience and worked with Harvard undergraduates to create a public forum for the discussion of alternative medicine, directing conferences for the Hippocratic Society.  She attended Cornell Medical School where she was awarded the Rudin Scholarship for Psychiatric Oncology and began her work in Reproductive Psychiatry, which she went on to train in during her residency at New York University, Bellevue, New York.  A strong interest in the interface of medicine and psychiatry led her to pursue a fellowship in Consultation Liaison/Psychosomatic Medicine at NYU/Bellevue/VA Hospital.  Since that time, she remains on faculty and has focused her efforts on her private practice where she cares for women across the life cycle including pregnancy and postpartum, and on teaching, lecturing, and writing to an international audience interested in evidence-based non-medication approaches to psychiatric symptoms and women’s wellness. Her academic areas of interest include toxicology/environmental medicine, nutrition, inflammatory models of mental illness, autoimmunity, and epigenetics. She has published in the field of Psycho-Oncology, Women’s Health, Perinatal Mental Health, Alternative Medicine, and Infectious Disease.  She is on the board of Green Med Info, Pathways to Family Wellness, and Fisher Wallace, and Medical Director for Fearless Parent. She is the nation’s only physician Board Certified in Psychiatry, Psychosomatic Medicine, as well as Board Certified in Integrative and Holistic Medicine.
