Overview of the Program


Mount Sinai Hospital's Family Practice Residency Program is an urban, community-based residency program that is fully accredited and recognized by the ACGME. Since its inception in January 1997 the program has guided and prepared its residents through a dynamic learning environment to deliver top notch care for patients in any and all setting - academic, clinical, or administrative; urban, suburban, or rural; outpatient or inpatient.

The Family Practice Residency Program at Mount Sinai features hospital-based curriculum that consists of the majority of conventional block rotations; office-based curriculum that emphasizes both the preventative care and chronic diseases that are predominant in family practice settings; and community-based curriculum that considers socioeconomic status, cultural beliefs and political processes, in relation to how they affect the health outcomes of the general population. Through this unique training, family practice residents emerge from our program confident of the skills needed to care for the whole health of diverse patients.

After completing residency majority of the graduates join private or hospital based practices in various parts of the United States and Canada with a few pursuing fellowships. Graduates from our Family Practice Residency Program have gone on to complete fellowships including but not limited to geriatrics, academic medicine, women’s health, sleep medicine, palliative care, and sports medicine.
