Internal Medicine Residency at Mount Sinai Beth Israel

Mount Sinai Beth Israel Internal Medicine Residency Program will be merging with the Mount Sinai Morningside and Mount Sinai West Internal Medicine Residency Program in July 2024.

We are not accepting applications for the 2023-24 main residency match cycle in ERAS.

The Internal Medicine Residency Program at Mount Sinai Beth Israel 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.

Whether you choose our categorical or preliminary residency, your training will be thorough and rigorous.

The experience during our residency program isn’t limited to life in the hospital. Read more about how our residents spend their time.

Applications will only be accepted through ERAS, the Electronic Residency Application Service. No applications or supporting materials (letters, score reports) will be accepted via mail or fax. There is no minimum score requirement for the USMLE or COMLEX, however, applicants with any failing score(s) will not be considered for an interview.

Our application deadline is November 15.

In order to apply you must submit: Dean’s Letter, Department of Medicine letter if you are an American medical school graduate, two additional letters of recommendation from attendings who supervised you, medical school transcript, personal statement, curriculum vitae and USMLE transcript with Step 1 and 2 scores or COMLEX transcript with Level 1 and Level 2 scores.

You must have graduated medical school within the last five years in order to apply.

Supplemental ERAS Application

For the current 2022-23 Recruitment Season, the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) has a supplemental application for candidates applying in Internal Medicine to allow for holistic review of candidates by programs. Applicants to our Internal Medicine Residency Program are not required to submit the supplemental application; it is voluntary during this cycle. We encourage candidates to complete the supplemental application; however, regardless of the completion of this supplemental application, every candidate’s ERAS application will be reviewed.

International Medical School Graduates

If all requirements are met prior to submitting our rank list, we can sponsor J-1 and H1-B visas.

We will not interview international medical graduates without ECFMG certification.

US clinical “observerships” are not required, but are helpful.

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 season starts in early November and ends in late January. There are no interviews between Christmas and New Year’s Day. We conduct all interviews on weekdays; we do not interview on weekends. All interviews will be virtual during the 2022-2023 cycle.

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.
