Program Director's Welcome
Welcome to the Mount Sinai Beth Israel Internal Medicine Residency Program website!! As part of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and the Mount Sinai Health System, our residency program in Internal Medicine provides superb training in a diverse, supportive and academic environment.
OF NOTE: Please look for our updated recruitment website which should launch at the end of September, 2014!
Mount Sinai Beth Israel's residency program in Internal Medicine has full accreditation by the ACGME and consists of 120 house staff across all three years of training, including approximately 15 trainees completing a preliminary year.
Our residents consistently secure top fellowships around the country (see inside for further details). The program supports resident scholarly activity, with many residents each year traveling to present their research work at local, national and international meetings.
The program provides outstanding clinical training, research opportunities and preparation for a career in either academic or clinical medicine. These endeavors are carried out in a humane, respectful and supportive environment where the delivery of compassionate, high-quality care is the guiding principle.
The Department of Medicine has approximately 115 full time and 26 part time faculty at the main hospital alone (the Petrie Division), many of whom have joint appointments in more than one division, providing for significant interaction within the department and throughout the institution.
The Department's total full time, part time and voluntary staff at all sites numbers more than 740 physicians, representing all disciplines of Internal Medicine. All faculty members are board certified or eligible, hold faculty appointments at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and are involved in training residents on inpatient services and in the subspecialty medicine teaching programs. Almost 20% of the full-time faculty participates in the ambulatory general medicine teaching program.
Most of the patients on the 300-bed medical service are admitted through the Emergency Department, which treats more than 60,000 patients annually. The patient mix is well balanced and represents the cultural and socioeconomic diversity of Beth Israel's metropolitan location. Residents are responsible for and play a major role in the care of all of these patients, including continuity of care between in-patient and ambulatory settings.
Functioning as a teacher is a major part of the house staff experience at Mount Sinai Beth Israel. Both MS3 and MS4/Sub Intern students from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai rotate here at Mount Sinai Beth Israel. Our residents work with these students regularly on inpatient floor rotations, where our students are fully integrated into the ward teams.
