MD Program at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
Ranked 19th out of 153 medical schools nationwide by the U.S. News & World Report and 18th by the National Institute for Health (NIH) for research funding, and 5th by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) for research funding per faculty, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai carries a legacy of excellence in education, basic, translational and clinical research, patient care, and service to our community. Founded on the principle of balancing biologic thinking in medicine with a concern for society and the whole patient, Icahn School of Medicine students and faculty create a rich environment for life-long learning. Having the School and The Mount Sinai Hospital on the same campus has enabled us to bring an extraordinary array of expertise into our classrooms and laboratories.
In addition to the recognition we have received for education and research, Icahn School of Medicine has achieved excellence in our service mission. We were honored with the Spencer Foreman Award for Outstanding Community Service in 2009, and received an 'A' on the American Medical Student Association (AMSA) PharmFree 2009 Scorecard.
The MD Program combines the most progressive, technologically-advanced, scientifically-based education with the goal of improving societal health care needs locally in New York City and around the world. We explicitly blur the traditional distinction between pre-clinical and clinical years by integrating the basic sciences across courses as well initiating students into to the clinical environment from their first day of school. The Longitudinal Clinical Experience, a two-year course that pairs students with chronically ill patients, allows students to learn about healthcare and medicine through the eyes of their patients. The Icahn School of Medicine encourages and supports the bold thinking and disciplined science that will fundamentally change the face of medicine.
The MD Program is extremely competitive, receiving approximately 6,000 applications for the fall freshman class of 140 students. We are seeking applicants who are not only academically successful and passionate about medicine, but also those who are enthusiastic about immersing themselves into our diverse community to enact change in medicine, science, and society.
