Dr. Occhiogrosso earned his medical degree from SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University in Brooklyn. He then completed his residency and an Addiction Fellowship at Mount Sinai Beth Israel in Manhattan.

After completing his fellowship, Dr. Occhiogrosso returned to Brooklyn to be Unit Chief for the inpatient Detoxification Service at Kings County Hospital Center. During his ten years at Kings County, Dr. Occhiogrosso served as the Psychiatry Clerkship Director for St. George’s University School of Medicine, Associate Program Director for the SUNY Downstate Residency Program, Medical Director of the Adult Inpatient Psychiatric Service, and Clinical Director of the Comprehensive Psychiatric Evaluation Program (CPEP).

In addition, Dr. Occhiogrosso spent nearly all of his professional career teaching, mentoring, and supervising psychiatric residents and medical students alongside his clinical work.
