The Department is committed to fostering the development of future health professionals by creating engaging opportunities for individuals interested in pursuing healthcare careers.
Clerkship and Electives
Education and clinical care are both major components of our Department. We are proud to offer various opportunities for Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai as well as visiting domestic and international medical students at the Institute for Family Health’s practice sites in New York City and the Mid-Hudson Valley. The Institute provides high-quality, patient-centered health care for diverse populations on a family practice model, and rotations at all sites provide valuable experience in family medicine, working with accomplished practitioners, innovative practices, and advanced technology. The Institute welcomes medical students interested in gaining first-hand experience providing primary care in medically underserved communities.
Clerkship for Mount Sinai Medical Students
The Institute for Family Health has Ambulatory Care clerkships at several Manhattan sites. Geared to third-year students at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, these rotations provide experience in outpatient family medicine. Currently, sites include the Family Health Center of Harlem, the Institute for Family Health at 17th St., the Amsterdam Family Health Center in Manhattan, and the Walton and Stevenson Family Health Centers in the Bronx.
If you are a Mount Sinai medical student interested in rotating with the Institute during your third year, you can request to have the Institute be your assigned site during the third-year lottery.
