The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) has a reputation for innovation and thoughtful risk taking. We encourage and support the bold thinking and disciplined science that are changing the face of medicine today. Our MD Program, embedded in the Leni and Peter W. May Department of Medical Education at Mount Sinai, combines the most progressive, technologically advanced, scientifically-based education with the goal of addressing health care needs locally, in New York City, and around the world.
The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai prepares you for the immediate challenges and future opportunities of practicing medicine and biomedical research. We are dedicated to helping you pursue your medical ambitions within a highly collaborative learning environment.
The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is a top-tier, highly selective school of medicine. We attract leading applicants from around the world, and carefully select those who not only have the strongest academic credentials, but who are committed to science in service to society.
Our mission is to produce physicians and scientists who are prepared to enter society as informed advocates and activists who are able to advance clinical care and science and promote change.
At the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, we provide more than just a rigorous, high quality medical education. We offer a supportive, inspiring, and personalized learning environment to help you reach your maximum potential – both as a physician and as a human being.
ISMMS can take part in a wide range of enriching service and training programs that enhance the educational experience.
We offer a research setting that breaks down barriers to collaboration. Here, we give you the opportunity to learn from and work alongside acclaimed researchers, but also to challenge them and chart your own course.
Rare among medical schools, we explicitly blur the lines between pre-clinical and clinical years by integrating the basic sciences across courses as well as introducing students to the clinical environment from their very first day of school.
The Academy for Medicine and the Humanities, launched in 2012 as part of the Department of Medical Education at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, serves the medical school by providing opportunities for didactic learning and independent scholarship in the medical arts and humanities.
The mission of the Office for Student Affairs is to promote student success and well-being by providing support, mentorship, and guidance on all aspects of student life throughout medical school and in planning of next career phases.
In the Office for Student Affairs we coordinate major student events including Orientation, the White Coat Ceremony, Match Day, Commencement, Awarding of Endowed Professorships, SINAInnovations, and Research Day.
