The Internal Medicine Residency Program at the Icahn School of Medicine produces the highest quality physicians and physician-scientists by fostering a residency program that emphasizes intellectual curiosity, compassion and camaraderie. Our goal is to create doctors capable of both clinical excellence and academic leadership. We provide an immersive, dynamic experience that trains future physicians to provide responsive, flexible, value-based care grounded in science. By being a vital member of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, our residents are able to take advantage of the diverse patient population seen at a large medical system while working in a tight-knit, collaborative environment.

Program Size and Application/Interview Notification Process
A committee reviews the applications to determine if an interview will be granted. Due to the volume of applications received we will not be able to interview all applicants. Our interview session starts in early November and ends in January. There are no interviews between Christmas and New Year. We conduct all interviews on weekdays; we do not interview on weekends.
If selected for an interview, you will receive an invitation via e-mail to the address you submitted to ERAS.
Application status is never communicated to applicants by phone. We do not provide updates on an application.
Due to our very high number of applicants, we apologize that we will not be able to notify you if you are not selected for an interview.
