About East Harlem Health Outreach Partnership (EHHOP)
In recognition of the lack of access to health care that affects so many, our mission is to create a health outreach partnership with the East Harlem community. We will provide quality health care, regardless of ability to pay or lack of health insurance, with the specific objective of reaching out to uninsured residents of East Harlem.
Consistent with our belief that proper health care is a right, not a privilege, we are committed to providing primary preventive care, diagnosing and treating illness, and fostering health awareness through education and advocacy. As part of our intent to care comprehensively for our patients, we will serve as a bridge to medical and social support resources that we cannot ourselves provide.
We will offer confidential, compassionate care in a safe, respectful environment. We aim to establish a positive approach to medicine by creating shared goals with our patients. We seek to empower them to participate actively in their physical and emotional well-being in order to enhance the effectiveness of our services.
As medical students, we commit to serving our patients' health care needs, and, in so doing, commit to expand our own knowledge, skills, and ideals. We will strive to rededicate ourselves continually to our roles as future physicians, strengthening our respect for medicine as students, so that we may maintain our commitment throughout our careers.
Administration – Student Leadership
EHHOP is student-run and as a result, the students of the Icahn School of Medicine carry out all aspects of the operation and administration of the clinic. The student leadership is comprised of a steering committee of elected medical students that serve one-year terms. Under the guidance of EHHOP's medical director and program director, the steering committee continually revises and improves clinic policies and protocols.
Mount Sinai Partnerships
Our success is possible only through the cooperation and dedication of many individuals and departments here at Mount Sinai. These include clinical laboratories, the Department of Radiology, the Division of General Internal Medicine, the Development Office, Medical Education, and many individual contributions.
