Preliminary Residency

Our Preliminary Residency Program offers a variety of inpatient and outpatient experiences in general medicine and specialty services at The Mount Sinai Hospital, Elmhurst Hospital Center, and The Bronx Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

The preliminary residency provides a strong foundation in internal medicine that graduates can draw upon in their subsequent specialty training. Most of our preliminary residents complete their post-graduate training in the following areas: Anesthesiology, Dermatology, Ophthalmology, Radiation Oncology, and Radiology. In addition, we have a special Preliminary Neurology Track for those who want to come to Mount Sinai for their neurology training.

A typical Preliminary schedule is as follows:

Ward Blocks 7-8
Night Med 2
ER 1-1.5
Elective 1
Vacation 1

ICU, ED, and outpatient blocks are available for preliminary interns who require them for their subspecialty residency. Those applicants interested in the Preliminary Residency Program should indicate such on their application, and use the appropriate NRMP number.
