Diversity of Experience

With three main training locations, you will be exposed to a wide array of patients that most trainees don’t see until later in their careers.

Mount Sinai Hospital: Founded in 1852, The Mount Sinai Hospital is a 1,171-bed urban hospital known internationally for delivering the most sophisticated and advanced medical care available. The Mount Sinai Hospital provides primary and secondary care to local residents, as well as tertiary care to patients referred from around the world. Located on the borders of East Harlem, one of the poorest communities in the nation, and the Upper East Side, one of the wealthiest, Mount Sinai attracts an incredibly diverse patient population.

Elmhurst Hospital Center: Elmhurst Hospital is a 618-bed municipal hospital located in Queens. It maintains a tight affiliation with Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and many residents spend time at this facility. Elmhurst Hospital Center is located in the most ethnically diverse square mile in the world. There are over 100 translators on staff at Elmhurst for nearly 85 different languages. Because of this unique patient population, Elmhurst offers a very special opportunity to care for patients with diseases rarely seen in other hospitals in the United States. The hospital provides all levels of care to over one million residents of Western Queens. The emergency room and outpatient clinics are among the busiest in New York City.
