Program Highlights

 
Mount Sinai’s Department of Medicine has a long academic tradition until recently participating in an integrated Residency Program with Chicago Medical School/Rosalind Franklin University. With this rich history, we find ourselves at an exciting juncture with the creation of a separate entity of Mount Sinai Hospital Internal Medicine Residency Training Program. As a separate program recruiting its own residents, we offer 12 PGY1 categorical Internal Medicine positions along with three preliminary year positions. Mount Sinai Hospital residents will continue to experience the rich educational experience afforded by this institution over the last 93 years.
 
 
This is an exciting time for Mount Sinai Hospital. With the starting of our own Internal Medicine Residency Program, we are also witnessing some major changes with plans for construction of a new outpatient facility and future plans for a new inpatient bed tower. We are also transitioning gradually to completely electronic medical records system with integration of inpatient and outpatient services. With our dedicated faculty and our emphasis on "back-to-the bedside" medicine, we continue to strive to create an environment of well-rounded academic learning.
 
Highlights
  • Our PGY1 year is designed to have typically 6-7 in-patient floor rotations, 1-2 medical ICU/step-down unit rotations, 2-3 medical sub-specialty rotations, 1 consult rotation, and 1 night float rotation along with half-day continuity clinics held once a week.
  • Residents are provided around the clock supervision by an academic hospitalist group and staff physicians.
  • High priority for teaching with daily didactic sessions such as morning reports and noon conferences. In addition, we offer monthly journal clubs, a hospitalist conference, research updates sessions, EKG conferences, and primary care conferences. These academic activities are primarily resident-driven with faculty input.
  • Research is an integral part of our program and residents are strongly encouraged to participate in intra-mural and extra-mural research with faculty guidance and supervisions. Many of our current residents have published and presented articles in national conferences.
  • Our residency program allows ample time for social events and personal life.
  • Great camaraderie among the residents is one of our prominent strengths and affords us the ability to work and have fun together.
  • Being in one of the most exciting and diverse cities in the world, we have come to enjoy every aspect of work and play while at Mount Sinai and truly make our residency experience academically rewarding, successful and pleasant.
  • We are transitioning gradually to a complete electronic medical records system with integration of inpatient and outpatient services. With our dedicated faculty and our emphasis on "back-to-the bedside" medicine, we continue to strive to create an environment of well-rounded academic learning.
