Clinical and Education Focus

At the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS), we have formed clinical- and education-focused affiliations with medical institutions throughout New York City, Long Island, and Westchester. These affiliations allow our students, faculty, and trainees to practice in diverse arenas that strengthen their clinical and educational skills.

Elmhurst Hospital Center

The Elmhurst Hospital Center (EHC) is a major teaching affiliate of ISMMS. The Center is a 531-bed hospital that provides primary, secondary, and tertiary medical care for the culturally diverse residents of western Queens, New York. It is one of the 11 acute care hospitals in New York City’s municipal health care system.

The physicians at Elmhurst Hospital Center have been playing a significant role in teaching our students since ISMMS opened its doors in 1968. EHC provides a rich variety of clinical training opportunities for the School’s medical students, who rotate through the Center for clinical clerkships and electives.

In addition, Elmhurst Hospital Center is a member of the Icahn School of Medicine Consortium for Graduate Medical Education, and most ISMMS residency and fellowship programs offer rotations here. Meanwhile, ISMMS-sponsored residency training programs are offered at Elmhurst Hospital Center in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Gastroenterology, Internal Medicine, Nephrology, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, and Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine.

Queens Hospital

Our academic affiliation with Queens Hospital Center (QHC) goes back to 1992. Located in Jamaica, Queens, in New York City, QHC has been the major provider of care for Southeast/Central Queens for over 75 years. It is a 350-bed acute care hospital that provides primary, secondary, and tertiary medical care. Queens Hospital Center is a 911 receiving facility, Certified Heart Station, and facilitator of two free-standing community health centers nearby. It is one of the 11 acute care hospitals in New York City’s municipal health care system.

Queens Hospital Center provides learning experiences for medical students at ISMMS. It is also a member of the Icahn School of Medicine Consortium for Graduate Medical Education. Currently, ISMMS residency training programs are offered at QHC in Dental Medicine, Internal Medicine, and Obstetrics and Gynecology.  

New Jewish Home

New Jewish Home, formerly known as the Jewish Home Lifecare, is a 514-bed skilled nursing care facility on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. One of the nation’s pioneer long-term care and rehabilitation centers, it has a large cadre of attending physicians and skilled nurses who provide care in all major specialties and sub-specialties.

The long-standing academic affiliation between the Icahn School of Medicine and Jewish Home Lifecare spans the clinical, research, and educational arenas, providing many opportunities for collaboration across sites.

The Brooklyn Hospital Center

The Brooklyn Hospital Center (TBHC), located in downtown Brooklyn, New York, provides a range of inpatient and outpatient services to the community. The academic affiliation between the Icahn School of Medicine and TBHC was formed in 2014, with a focus on education.  

We help to develop, and at times, sponsor, TBHC residency and fellowship training programs. We also consider TBHC residents for ISMMS fellowship programs based on each candidate’s appropriate qualifications. ISMMS medical students take part in clerkships, electives, and other programs developed between the two institutions.

CareMount Medical

CareMount Medical, formerly known as the Mount Kisco Medical Group, is an outpatient group practice comprised of approximately 500 practitioners in 40 different medical specialties. CareMount serves over 500,000 patients in 40 locations throughout Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess, Columbia, and Ulster counties.

We are working with CareMount to develop collaborative initiatives to deliver excellent patient care, improve the health status of our communities, advance scientific inquiry, and train future physicians.

Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center

The academic affiliation between Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center and the Icahn School of Medicine became effective on January 1, 2016. Bronx Lebanon Hospital Center is part of the largest voluntary, not-for-profit health care system serving the South and Central Bronx. That system encompasses 972 beds at two major hospital divisions, comprehensive psychiatric and chemical dependency programs, two specialized long-term care facilities, and an extensive BronxCare Network of medical practices.

As a result of the academic affiliation, Bronx Lebanon residency training programs now fall under the wing of the Icahn School of Medicine's Consortium for Graduate Medical Education.

New York Psychoanalytic Society and Institute

The New York Psychoanalytic Society and Institute (NYPSI), located on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, applies modern psychoanalytic principles to provide educational, research, and community service activities for mental health professionals and the general public. NYPSI trains psychoanalytic candidates and psychotherapy students, as well as professionals in both mental health and other fields whose work is enhanced by a psychoanalytic perspective. NYPSI also provides a range of clinical and community service activities including psychoanalysis and psychotherapy, parenting education, pediatric consultations, clinical outreach to mental health institutions, and collaboration with community and social agencies. The ISMMS-NYPSI academic affiliation is designed to tap into each institution’s strengths in student education and patient care.
