ISMMS/Deloitte Consulting Academic Partnership

Solving this century’s social, medical, and scientific challenges will require collaboration between the brightest minds from a cross section of industries. At the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) we believe that recruiting students with diverse backgrounds and experiences and providing them access to a wide range of specialized training will better position them to make meaningful contributions to the world’s most pressing health issues. Our Academic Partnership with Deloitte Consulting provides strong mentorship and real-world business, consulting, and leadership credentials at one of the world’s leaders in health care consulting.

Business Analyst Track

Deloitte Analysts who have successfully completed two or three years at the firm and who have an outstanding academic record will have the opportunity to apply to ISMMS without the traditional science qualifications or sitting for the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT). This initiative builds on the success of the  Donald and Vera Blinken FlexMed Program, which encourages talented undergraduates from any discipline to apply to the early assurance program at ISMMS.

Applicants who successfully complete medical school will have the option of applying to join the firm full-time or continuing to residency training.

Fellowship in Health Care Consulting and Leadership (Scholarly Year)

ISMMS students in their third year of medical school have the option of applying for a Scholarly Year, or scholarly leave of absence, for up to two years between years three and four. About one third of every class chooses to do so.

ISMMS students will now have the option of applying to Deloitte for a one-year health care consulting internship, providing an outstanding alternative to more traditional MD/MBA programs. If selected, they will function as a full-time paid employee at Deloitte for that period of time.

Current ISMMS students interested in pursuing a fellowship at Deloitte can obtain more information on the application process here or by contacting the Medical Student Research Office.
