We are deeply committed to the highest standards of excellence in community health, epidemiology, environmental pediatrics, and preventive and occupational medicine.
Our mission is to promote good health, to prevent disease, and to protect the environment in the many communities that the Mount Sinai Health System serves.
For half a century our advances in the clinical, research, and educational arenas of environmental medicine and public health have helped us improve countless lives, both locally and on the world stage. As the epidemics of environmental disease evolve, so do our challenges, and we stand ready to take them on, unfalteringly.
Every day, we are cultivating the next generation of leaders in environmental medicine and public health. We provide interdisciplinary training in epidemiology, occupational medicine, environmental pediatrics, and general preventive medicine to medical students, Master of Public Health students, residents, and fellows. As a student immersed in our innovative curriculum and individualized faculty mentorship, you are trained to treat workers exposed to occupational hazards and children who have come in contact with environmental toxins, and trained to guide the development of sustainable and healthy communities.
