Clinical Operations

EHHOP is staffed each week with more than 20 Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) medical students from all class years and two or more volunteer attending physicians. EHHOP functions as a primary care clinic where students serve in clinical teams composed of a senior and a junior clinician, clinic manager, lab personnel, patient advocates, and several other positions necessary to maintain a functioning clinic.

Students see all patients under the supervision of faculty from the General Internal Medicine Division of the Mount Sinai Hospital, in addition to faculty from the Departments of Obstetrics & Gynecology, Psychiatry, and Ophthalmology departments. Our staff also includes social workers who provide screenings for insurance eligibility, psychosocial counseling, and referrals to other agencies. Additionally, staff includes nutritionists and nurse practitioners.

Faculty Involvement

ISMMS physicians are critical to our success at EHHOP. Attending physicians staff the clinic each week, providing care to our patients and instruction to our students. Physicians also provide charitable specialty care and assist in recruiting colleagues and other service providers.

Attending physicians at EHHOP play a formative role in medical education. They share their enthusiasm for advocacy with students and teach them the value of providing high quality, evidence-based care for vulnerable populations.

Physicians who volunteer several times throughout the year may fulfill departmental service requirements. If you are an attending physician or fellow interested in volunteering, please contact our Physician Recruitment Chair at
