Education and Training
Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center offers professional training through its ACGME-accredited Adolescent Medicine Fellowship training program, resident and medical student electives, social work externships, and psychology internship and externship programs. Visit our Fellowship Training pages for an in-depth look at our adolescent medicine program.
Adolescent Medicine fellows are integral to the provision of medical services, and function as primary care providers under the direction of a supervising attending physician. In their service to clinical and community sites, our fellows care for adolescents at the school-based health centers and have the opportunity to participate in the care of college women at the Barnard College Student Health Center, a part of the Columbia University system.
The Division of Adolescent Medicine plays an active role in patient care and teaching on the general pediatrics inpatient unit at Mount Sinai Hospital. The Division also conducts clinical research in the areas of adolescent HIV and AIDS, the psychosocial aspects of sexual abuse in adolescents, reproductive health, human papilloma virus transmission, and foster care youth.
Fellowship Training Program
The Adolescent Medicine Fellowship program at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai trains physicians to serve as leaders in adolescent medicine. Our three-year fellowship is certified by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), and provides physicians with the skills they need to become expert clinicians, educators, researchers, and advocates.
