The Samuel Bronfman Department of Medicine’s residency training program focuses on the clinical skills, knowledge, leadership and humanistic qualities of the Internist.
There is an abundant amount of formal instruction throughout our training program. This includes an emphasis on developing each resident’s teaching and leadership skills. All inpatient and outpatient rotations have daily educational activities in various formats. Noon Conference takes place three days a week and provides a didactic program that covers all of the major topics of Internal Medicine. Morning report takes place on a daily basis with the Internal Medicine Program Director which is a venue where residents are challenged on general case management and the evi¬dence that supports clinical decisions making. Medical Grand Rounds is a weekly conference that addresses major current issues in translational science, current medical practices, ethics, or education. Speakers are selected from the Sinai faculty as well as external visiting professorships.
A weekly intern report allows interns to hone their presentation and differential diagnosis skills and review the literature on selected topics. Resident report focuses on subspecialty case presentations to faculty selected by the residents. Several additional conferences add to the educational environment. Peripheral blood smear rounds with Dr. Barry Coller, former chairman of medicine and Vice President of Medical Affairs at Rockefeller University and cardiac bedside rounds with Dr. Valentin Fuster, chairman of Mount Sinai Heart, are conducted every two weeks.
Mount Sinai Housestaff spend a significant part of their training in the outpatient setting at Internal Medicine Associates (IMA), a diverse, high volume outpatient primary care clinic that draws its patients from both East Harlem and the Upper East Side. Each resident has a panel of patients that he or she follows throughout residency with an assigned faculty preceptor to allow for continuity of care. During outpatient rotations, residents are exposed to multiple facets of outpatient internal medicine care through participation in specialty clinics including gynecology, musculoskeletal, psychiatric evaluation, diabetes, and pre-operative assessment. Additionally, residents rotate through Mount Sinai’s Visiting Doctors program, one of the largest in the country, conducting home visits throughout Manhattan. While on outpatient blocks, residents have an ambulatory noon conference that focuses on core outpatient topics.
