Thank you for your interest in the Clinical Informatics Fellowship program at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Although the fellowship site is The Mount Sinai Hospital, which includes our hospital clinics, and faculty practice, there will be opportunities for fellows throughout the Mount Sinai Health System because our faculty has system-wide responsibilities. Our clinical home is the Division of General Internal Medicine, and our academic affiliation is with the Center for Clinical Informatics in the Department of Pathology. Nationally renowned Clinical Informaticist Dr. Joseph Kannry, MD, leads both as the Fellowship Program Director and the Director for the Center for Clinical Informatics in the Department of Pathology.
The Mount Sinai Health System provides a broad and extensive variety of environments for training in “real world” clinical informatics. We feel that it’s the intersection of Clinical Informatics with Clinical Care that makes for the best training experience, so both must be excellent. The Mount Sinai Health System combines the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and seven hospital campuses to provide the highest quality health care throughout the New York metropolitan area. Our integrated resources and expertise offer patients comprehensive care from birth through geriatrics, including complex cases. Mount Sinai Health System, due to the number of hospitals and ambulatory care sites as well as its variety of locations, spans the entire spectrum of patients socioeconomically, culturally, and linguistically. From the affluent communities of the Upper East and West Sides of New York to a poor, indigent patient population, patients come to the Mount Sinai Health System for the very best health care. U.S. News & World Report ranked The Mount Sinai Hospital 16th in 2016 along with awarding it recognition as a high performing hospital and best regional hospital status. Mount Sinai Health System is ranked No. 1 on the 2017 DiversityInc “Top Hospitals and Health Systems”list as the highest-ranked health system nationally as well as in the New York metro area.
In 2013 Mount Sinai was recipient of the prestigious 2012 Davies Award for Enterprise EHR. The Davies award recognizes “outstanding achievement in the implementation and value” from EHRs. In recognition of its innovative use of information technology to improve value-based health care, the Mount Sinai Health System was named a 2016 “Most Wired™” organization by the American Hospital Association and the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives.
