Dr. Deutsch served as the Chief Resident of Psychiatry in the NYU-Bellevue Psychiatric Hospital program (1980-1981). Throughout residency training, Dr. Deutsch participated in clinical research with Dr. Samuel Gershon in areas of schizophrenia and affective disorders; his research fellowship in Child Psychiatry was with Dr. Magda Campbell, the premier investigator in pediatric psychopharmacology.  Dr. Deutsch completed fellowship training in psychopharmacology in NIH’s intramural research program as a Pharmacology Research Associate (PRAT Fellow), working in the laboratory of Dr. Steven M. Paul.

In July, 2009, Dr. Deutsch assumed his current academic position as Professor and Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS). Dr. Deutsch has over 30 years of experience in preclinical and clinical research with over 250 scholarly publications.  He serves as Associate Editor for the Clinical Neuropharmacology and is also a reviewer on numerous international and national psychiatry and neuropharmacology journals.  He has been interested in neurochemical basis of the social impairment in Autism Spectrum Disorder by studying neurophysiology of the Balb/c mouse model of autism.

“I am both a didactic instructor in neuroscience as well as a psychodynamic psychotherapy supervisor in the residency program. I lead a cognitive neuroscience seminar for all interested faculty and residents.

I enjoy showing the residents that psychiatry spans the whole spectrum of the brain/mind continuum from the basic neurosciences to the clinical skills of delivering psychodynamic psychotherapy.”
