Education in the Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai includes a wide variety of opportunities, including residencies, fellowships, elective courses, and other programs.
In addition to our General Preventive Medicine Residency, Occupational and Environmental Medicine Residency, and T32 Pediatric Environmental Health Fellowship, we host an internship, an exchange program, an international training program, and environmental health electives.
Public Health Internship Program
Our Environmental Medicine Internship Program for Minority Students invites you to participate in a short-term training opportunity with us if you have a particular interest in the biomedical sciences and qualify as a minority.
International Exchange Program
The International Exchange Program for Minority Students supports you, as a student or recent graduate, in mentored research abroad. The program emphasizes collaboration and the exchange of scientific and cultural knowledge in an atmosphere of support for diversity. We select minority bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degree students from across the United States to participate.
International Training Program in Environmental and Occupational Health
Our International Training Program in Environmental and Occupational Health strives to support the environmental and occupational health sciences in Brazil, Chile, and Mexico while increasing awareness and measurable action against the avoidable conditions our Department is focused on. Our program promotes international awareness, collaboration, and progress in this increasingly important field.
Pediatrics Environmental Health Electives
As a resident, medical school or public health student, you may take Pediatric Environmental Health Electives, fielding clinical questions about childhood environmental exposures and learning to take an environmental history under the guidance of Environmental Pediatric physicians. You also have the opportunity to participate in clinical evaluations, educational seminars and lectures, and meetings with representatives from public health agencies. Although the focus of the elective is clinical, you have ample opportunity to assist with ongoing research, advocacy projects, and scientific papers. Mentoring is available for independent projects as well.
