Our vision in Pediatric Medical Education is to translate our collective intellectual curiosity, clinical expertise, and commitment to social justice into top-notch innovative education for our residents, fellows, and students to prepare them to provide unsurpassed care to the communities we serve.
The Jack and Lucy Clark Department of Pediatrics at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai has a long history of advancing pediatric science and serving the needs of New York City’s children. We were founded in 1878 by Dr. Abraham Jacobi, widely recognized as one of the founders of pediatrics, as the first pediatric department in a general hospital in New York City and one of the first in the United States. Since our Department’s founding, we have been led by a line of illustrious department chairs who are pioneers and leaders in pediatrics including Henry Koplik, MD, Bella Schick, MD, Horace Hodes, MD, Kurt Hirschhorn, MD, Fred Suchy, MD, and Lisa M. Satlin, MD.
