Benefits for Residents and Fellows

The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai’s Graduate Medical Education (GME) Office works hard to ensure a dynamic resident and fellow learning environment. Using input from residents, fellows, program directors and coordinators, our GME Office is continually enhancing the benefits available. As a resident or fellow, you can expect to receive:

  • Competitive stipends
  • Excellent health benefits
  • Apartments in hospital-owned and off campus housing (subject to availability)
  • Education supplements to cover costs such as medical licensure
  • Travel funds for presenting research at scholarly meetings
  • Shuttle service between the Mount Sinai Health System campuses
  • Taxi reimbursement for late-night clinical assignments
  • High-quality meals for on call or night float assignments
  • Access to activity and event discounts, available through the Recreation office 

Some campuses offer amenities additional to those above. Please contact the GME Office with any other questions you may have about stipends or benefits.


Our Real Estate Division provides on and off campus housing for students, residents and postdoctoral fellows. We are committed to providing housing that suits your professional and educational needs.

Resident Housing

Housing options for the Mount Sinai Hospital residents and fellows can be viewed on our Housing Locator Map and Related Housing Resources. Housing offers are based on a three-category system including incoming families, incoming couples, and incoming singles. Each application will receive a randomly assigned lottery number. In an effort to accommodate housing preferences, each applicant must indicate their top ten housing choices. It is not guaranteed that you will receive one of your top ten housing choices. Although, it is guaranteed that you will receive a housing offer within the on and off campus inventory. 

Clinical Fellow offers are based on Category One Programs that only qualify for off campus housing options. 

**Please note that the Housing Application Link (below) will not be activated until March 22, 2017**
