Susan Coates

Dr. Paulina Fischer Kernberg, an Internationally Renowned psychoanalyst on the Faculty of the Columbia Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research, and a distinguished Professor of Child Psychiatry at the Westchester branch of Weill Medical College of Cornell University, died in New York City from cancer on April 12 at age 71.

Dr. Kernberg was born in Santiago, Chile, where she received her undergraduate and medical degrees from the University of Chile. She did her psychiatric training at the Menninger Memorial Hospital in Topeka, Kansas, and completed her psychoanalytic training at the Topeka Institute for Psychoanalysis in 1969. From 1975-1978, Dr. Kernberg was the director of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the Bronx Municipal Hospital Center of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. She then moved to Weill Cornell, Westchester Division and served as Director of the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry from 1978 until 1996, and as Director of the Child and Adolescent training program from 1978 until her death. She became a full professor of psychiatry in 1995. Contemporaneously she served as Training and Supervising Analyst at the Columbia Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research from 1977 until her death.

An unassuming and unpretentious woman in both personal and public situations, Dr. Kernberg had enormous industry and determination.
