The Mount Sinai Hospital

Located on Manhattan's Upper East Side just opposite Central Park, The Mount Sinai Hospital is one of New York's major teaching hospitals, with 1,200 inpatient beds and a full range of tertiary- and quaternary-care services. The Mount Sinai Hospital shares a physical plant with Icahn School of Medicine, affording residents access to the School of Medicine's Levy Library and other academic resources. Residents spend seven to nine months each year in rotation at The Mount Sinai Hospital.

Elmhurst Hospital Center

Training at Elmhurst Hospital Center, a 618-bed, tertiary care center affiliated with Mount Sinai and located in Elmhurst, Queens, rounds out the residents' experience. Residents spend three to five months each year at EHC providing care for all obstetrical and gynecologic patients. Attending supervision is provided by physicians with appointments at Icahn School of Medicine.

Rotation through this city hospital offers residents experience in caring for severely ill gynecologic and obstetrical patients with complex medical and social problems. The patients represent an extraordinary variety of ethnic backgrounds and constitute a unique patient population. EHC maintains an ambulance service that transports acutely ill people, including unregistered obstetrical patients, to the hospital. These rotations provide an excellent educational experience to complement the one obtained at The Mount Sinai Hospital.
