As the focus in health care shifts from specialty care to primary care, the need for leading academic internists becomes greater. The ability of general internists to critically assess clinical outcomes and evaluate health services interventions is increasingly important. The general medicine fellowship strives to prepare fellows to become academic internists with a focus on training the next generation of clinician-investigator leaders. We provide research training tailored to each fellow’s research and clinical interests. The breadth and depth of research interests held by the many established researchers in our division and across the Mount Sinai system and the tradition of collaboration across divisions and departments creates abundant opportunities for a variety of mentored clinical research projects.
Fellows take formal coursework to complete a MPH or MSCR during their two year training to prepare them to be successful clinical researchers. In addition to research, the fellowship includes development of teaching skills, participation in faculty development conferences and continued development of clinical skills. Fellows are exposed to a variety of opportunities to enhance their research and education training throughout the 2-year fellowship and have the opportunity to interact with and learn from the expertise and experiences within the Mount Sinai Health System. Our graduates have successful NIH-funded research careers and educational leadership roles in academic institutions across the country.
Thank you for your interest and I hope you will consider applying to our program.
