As the Women’s Health Research Institute leverages the existing research strengths at Mount Sinai, we will be cultivating promising trainees by:
- Establishing the Women’s Health Scholars Program and recruiting residents to spend an additional year learning research methodology for a career in women’s health.
- Strengthening the curriculum on biostatistics, epidemiology, and research methodology in the residency research core program.
- Utilizing the many training programs available through the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) and the Center for Biostatistics to augment training.
- Changing the educational profile of Mount Sinai residency and fellowship programs and further attracting the top medical school and residency candidates by building our research capabilities in women's health.
We will be recruiting a number of faculty members in diverse fields to build the multidisciplinary Women’s Health Research Institute. We plan to collaborate with other departments and institutes and to recruit faculty from a broad range of disciplines including those with expertise in genetics, immunology, behavioral health, disparities and health equity, novel statistical methods, epidemiology, LGBT health, and mental health.
