Our Residents

Our residents match the diversity of the patients we serve. They come from New York City, the tri-state region, across the United States and all over the world. Our residents embrace the opportunity to learn about different cultures and traditions as much as from each other as from their patients.

Five exceptional and dedicated house staff are chosen annually to stay on an additional year. They are role models, educators, leaders and housestaff advocates.  In addition to scheduling conferences and speakers at Grand Rounds, they are an invaluable resource for teaching, conducting rounds, disseminating medical literature and overseeing administrative and educational aspects of the program.

The 2016-2017 Chief Residents are:

Click here to view the list of our former housestaff members and what institution they went to upon completing the Mount Sinai St. Luke’s and Mount Sinai West Internal Medicine Residency Program.

While the demands of residency are great, it is possible to take advantage of living in one of the greatest, most culturally vibrant cities on the planet. Throughout the year there are numerous planned activities that build camaraderie among the residents and allow you to have a good time. From the talent show to the holiday party to the end-of-the-year party, our residents truly enjoy each other’s company and like to spend time hanging out with each other. In addition, residents participate in a soccer club, happy hours and promotional group activities such as theater, museum and Central Park events.

Housing

The hospital provides housing for residents across the street from Mount Sinai West. The two buildings located at 515 West 59th Street and 10 Amsterdam Avenue have apartments for residents at a subsidized rate, below market-value. Studios, one and two bedroom apartments are available, each with modern amenities like heating/air-conditioning units, laundry machines in the building and 24-hour security.

Transportation

There is a bus service (“the Jitney”) provided between our St. Luke’s and West campuses and most housestaff use that or public transportation to get around. For those residents who choose to live off-campus, and to drive to work, there is subsidized parking at lots conveniently located near the hospitals.

Benefits & Salary

Residents at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s and Mount Sinai West are all part of the Committee of Interns and Residents (CIR) union. Representatives are chosen from the department and serve as delegates for the residents. The compensation package includes comprehensive medical, dental and vision benefits, as well as life insurance. In addition, residents receive four weeks of paid vacation, malpractice insurance paid by the hospital, disability insurance and reimbursement for travel to academic conferences.
