Caring for a Diverse Population

As a member of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai community, one of the first things you’ll realize is that New York City is no ordinary place in which to learn, teach, and practice. Working and studying within the Mount Sinai Health System, you’ll have a chance to take classes and do rotations in facilities around the boroughs and neighborhoods of the city. You’ll treat and learn from patients who range from those with unlimited resources to those who don’t even have homes or health insurance.  This extraordinary setting presents students and faculty with the chance to see and learn things that might take years to encounter in a less diverse environment.
