Dr. Kaufman earned his medical degree from the University of Chicago and completed training in internal medicine and neurology at Montefiore Medical Center / Albert Einstein College of Medicine (AECOM) hospitals.  During his residency, Dr. Kaufman originated the nationwide course, Clinical Neurology for Psychiatrists, which he still directs.

In addition to his educational role at AECOM hospitals, Dr. Kaufman, in partnership with Dr. Michael Swerdlow, founded the quintessential neurology faculty practice, K&S, at Montefiore hospital. K&S is the largest and longest surviving faculty practice in the institution. Dr. Kaufman also gives neurology consultations and attending rounds and supervises neurology clinics at Montefiore. In the clinics and faculty practice, Dr. Kaufman concentrates on the neurologic aspects of psychiatric illness and movement disorders. He works closely with the psychiatrists and, for botulinum treatment of certain dystonias, the neuromuscular group. Dr. Kaufman is the 2007 recipient of Montefiore’s Staff and Alumni award for outstanding service.
