John Young, Clinical Professor at Yale University Medical School, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in forensic psychiatry.
Influenced by the faculty members at his high school, Mr. Young decided to pursue a career in psychiatry. He attended Stonehill College and earned a Bachelor of Arts with magna cum laude honors in 1966. Four years, he secured a Master in Theology from the University of Notre Dame, further earning a Master of Science from the university in 1974. Upon concluding his academic efforts with a Doctor of Medicine from Stanford University in 1977, he began a residency in medicine with the Norwalk Hospital for a year, until 1978. Subsequently, Mr. Young completed a residency in psychiatry as well as a postdoctoral fellowship with Yale University Medical School, between 1978 and 1982.
Mr. Young assumed employment with the aforementioned university as an assistant professor of psychiatry from 1982 to 1988, later serving as an attending psychiatrist for the Whiting Forensic Division of the Connecticut Valley Hospital in Middletown, Connecticut, from 1988 to 2009. During this time, he continued teaching at Yale University Medical School as an assistant clinical professor, further progressing to an associate clinical professor by 2004. Currently, he excels as a clinical professor with the aforementioned university, a position he has held since 2004. The highlight of Dr. Young’s career was being able to phone other residents at the time, to ask them what their experience with their residency program. This allows him to set the stage for openness and free communication, something he valued in a school. He was most proud of being able to provide information to his students in a professional manner.
As a testament to his success, he has been a recipient of numerous awards including the President’s Medal from Stonehill College, the Roger Coleman Award from the Connecticut Psychiatric Society, and the Howard Zonana Alumni Award for Contributions to Forensic. To remain aware of changes in the field, he maintains affiliation with numerous organizations such as the American Psychiatric Association, the American Academy Forensic Sciences, the American Medical Association, the American Academy, the American Association for the Advancement of Science among others. In his spare time, Mr. Young enjoys playing the piano, swimming, backpacking, exercising, and block printing.
