Thank you for your interest in our Internal Medicine Residency Program at Mount Sinai Hospital.
Mount Sinai Hospital is an urban teaching hospital serving a diverse patient population. Our residents provide vital clinical services to the community while participating in an educational program that encourages progressive independence in a clinically rich academic environment.
Our educational emphasis focuses on evidence-based medicine, clinical problem solving, cognitive enhancement, clinical skills, independence in thought and action, and superb clinical experiences. This includes outpatient experiences that incorporate private practice with participation in a Federally Qualified Community Health Center.
Mount Sinai Hospital has a long history of involvement in graduate medical education and offers accredited residencies in internal medicine, family medicine, general surgery, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, podiatry, and physical medicine and rehabilitation. This enhances the opportunities to work with a variety of other physicians in training.
Internal Medicine Residency Program was a major teaching component of the Rosalind Franklin University of Health and Science till 2011. From this academic year of 2013, we are an independent residency program.
We foster a sense of community among our residents and faculty and celebrate the diversity of our physicians and the patients we serve. We encourage you to join our learning community if you are interested in a program of service, academic excellence, progressive responsibility and preparation for internal medicine or its subspecialties.
