Healthcare Leadership Track
The Healthcare Leadership Track is designed for residents interested in becoming leaders in inpatient medicine as critical care attendings, hospitalists, cardiologists, ID/HIV attendings, geriatricians, or other subspecialists.
Due to increasing clinical distinctions and financial pressures, hospitals require physician leaders who have both clinical expertise and skills in improving hospital systems and processes. In response to these demands, many internists are now focusing their careers on inpatient activities.
This is one of the few programs in the country that offers internal medicine residents the opportunity to gain the skills and experience in:
- Quality Improvement and Patient Safety
- Hospital Leadership
- The Business of Medicine
- Hospital Efficiency and Utilization Management.
The curriculum is integrated into the elective blocks of the 2nd and 3rd year of the Internal Medicine Residency and consists of a mix of didactics, clinical experiences, and direct involvement in hospital processes. All residents will develop and complete a longitudinal, mentored hospital leadership research project.
Applicants interested in the Healthcare Leadership Track should apply to the Categorical Residency program. Once enrolled at Mount Sinai, residents are encouraged to speak with Brian Markoff, MD, about entering this program. Interested applicants should make note of their interest on the application, so appropriate interviews can be arranged.
