From 1999-2007 he was the Ruane Professor of Psychiatry at Columbia University, as well as founding Director of its Center for Advancement of Children's Mental Health. From 1989-1999 he was Associate Director for Child & Adolescent Mental Disorders Research at the National Institute of Mental Health.
An international authority on children's mental health, Dr. Jensen has published 20 books, as well as over 300 peer-reviewed scientific articles and book chapters.
Dr. Jensen received his BS with high honors from Brigham Young University (l974), his MD from George Washington University Medical School (l978) (Alpha Omega Alpha), and completed his post-graduate training in psychiatry and child and adolescent psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco and Letterman Army Medical Center.
