MD Program at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
The Icahn School of medicine is ranked 19th out of 153 medical schools nationwide by U.S. News & World Report, 17th 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. We have 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, our school offers a rich environment for lifelong learning. As the only school affiliated with the Mount Sinai Health System, we bring an extraordinary array of expertise into our classrooms and laboratories.
In addition to the recognition we have received for education and research, the 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 2013 Scorecard.
The MD Degree Program combines the most progressive, technologically advanced, scientifically-based education with the goal of addressing health care needs locally in New York City and around the world. We explicitly blur the traditional distinction between preclinical and clinical years by integrating the basic sciences across courses as well initiating students into the clinical environment from their first day of school. The Longitudinal Clinical Experience (LCE), a two-year course that pairs students with chronically ill patients, allows students to learn about health care and medicine through the eyes of their patients. The Icahn School of Medicine encourages and supports the bold thinking and disciplined science that will change the face of medicine.
The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai MD Program is extremely competitive, receiving more than 5,000 applications for each entering class of 140 students. We are seeking applicants who are not only academically successful and passionate about medicine, but enthusiastic about immersing themselves into our diverse community to enact change in medicine, science, and society.
