Learn by Practicing in the Real World
Education at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is enriched by both the type and range of real-world patients seen by physicians in the Mount Sinai Health System. Our students are not limited to rotations at one hospital or restrained by a narrow patient pool. Our New York City-wide system of hospitals and outpatient facilities, along with a patient population that is as large and varied as the people in New York City itself, forms our training and practice environment.
Students are able to see patients in many locations and clinical areas including:
The East Harlem Health Outreach Partnership (EHHOP)
Our student-run, physician-supervised free clinic provides primary care to uninsured adults in the East Harlem neighborhood.
New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai (NYEE)
Nearly two-centuries old, this hospital’s long tradition of treating the local working poor continues to this day in tandem with treatment for patients from all over the tri-state area. NYEE is internationally recognized for its exceptional, comprehensive services for the diagnosis and treatment of all diseases of the eyes, ears, nose, and throat and related conditions. Our nurses, physicians, and staff are committed to providing high-quality medical care to every patient we serve.
