Marc Dubin, M.D., Ph.D.

Marc Dubin

Marc Dubin, MD PhD specializes in the evaluation of patients with major depressive disorder and bipolar disorder who have been resistant to previous treatment. He combines psychopharmacology treatment with psychotherapy. When appropriate, he also uses brain stimulation treatments, including Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT).

Dr. Dubin is an Attending Psychiatrist in the TMS program as well as on the inpatient unit and sees patients in private practice. He is an assistant professor at Weill Cornell Medical College, where he teaches both medical students and residents in psychiatry. In addition, he conducts research to gain greater insight into the mechanisms of brain stimulation as well as to optimize its delivery.

Dr. Dubin graduated from the College of the University of Chicago, earned a Ph.D. in Neurobiology and an M.D. from The University of Rochester School of Medicine. After completing his residency in Psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medical College, he was a Fellow at Columbia, were he studied families at high risk for Depression with Dr. Bradley Peterson and Dr. Myrna Weissman. He has published in the fields of Cognitive Neuroscience, Neurophysiology, and Neuroimaging of Depression.
