Dr. Sengupta‘s academic interests have centered around collaborative care, family systems, and medical education. In 2013, he started Integrated Care/for Kids, a collaborative care program in pediatric and adult primary care settings in WNY, leading a team of therapists and care coordinators working closely with primary care clinicians to better manage mild to moderate behavioral health issues at "the right time and the right place."

He is also a member of the Project TEACH team, which provides phone consultations and mental health educational training to pediatric primary care clinicians throughout the state of New York.

He supervises fellows at the Children‘s Psychiatry Clinic and at Oishei Children‘s Hospital and teaches extensively on clinical neurodevelopment, collaborative care, and family systems. He is fortunate to teach and mentor trainees across the developmental spectrum and collaborate with tremendous colleagues in multiple disciplines. Since 2023, he has been working to launch the Learning Communities program and the CommunityConnect service learning program at the Jacobs School.
