In addition to our robust educational, supervisory, and support services, we, at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, provide our residents and fellows with a variety of career, service, and networking opportunities––either on one of our campuses or out in New York City.
House Staff Councils
Each of our campuses has a self-governed, representative body of interns, residents, and fellows. These forums meet to discuss patient care issues, education, and decisions affecting the Graduate Medical Education (GME) community––such as resident stipends and benefits. Our resident forums are dedicated to improving the learning environment and well being of our residents.
We prepare our house staff to become health care quality leaders. We invite our residents and fellows to contribute to our patient safety culture through root cause analyses, improvement projects, and resident quality councils.
Many of our house staff council representatives also serve on important institutional committees, including the Medical Board and the Graduate Medical Education Committee (GMEC).
Resident Day of Service
Once a year, our residents get together for a day of organized volunteer work at a local charitable organization. In addition to engaging the communities we serve, the day of service bonds our residents together for a great cause.
Career Development and Counseling
Our GME office provides career seminars and counseling for all residents and fellows. As a resident or fellow, you also get access to our Physician Careers portal, which showcases job opportunities in the Mount Sinai Health System.
We understand the importance of maintaining a reasonable work-life balance. As such, we offer a number of social events in partnership with our house staff councils. Past events include happy hours, an ice cream social, and a kickball tournament.
