The Icahn School of Medicine Consortium for Graduate Medical Education was established in 1995 with the assistance of a two-year grant from the New York State Education Department. The Consortium was granted accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) in 1996 and has been granted continued accreditation following all subsequent ACGME Institutional Reviews.

Consisting of 17 hospitals in the New York metropolitan area, the Consortium currently trains approximately 2,400 residents. Of the 17 participating hospitals, 9 have residency programs sponsored by Icahn School of Medicine.
