Join us and redefine the practice of modern medicine
The Mount Sinai Health System is passionate about health care. We’re united by a shared purpose to heal, teach and advance medicine for the benefit of our local neighbors and global community. We are a compassionate yet agile group of clinicians working collaboratively to provide patients with the best care possible.
Created in October 2013, the Health System is structured around seven member hospital campuses—Mount Sinai Beth Israel, Mount Sinai Beth Israel Brooklyn, The Mount Sinai Hospital, Mount Sinai Queens, Mount Sinai Roosevelt, Mount Sinai St. Luke’s and New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai—and includes the world renowned Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, an extensive ambulatory network, and a wide-range of inpatient and outpatient services. With more than 35,000 employees, we’re one of the largest employers in the city of New York.
The Health System consists of an estimated 6,600 primary and specialty care physicians, 12 minority-owned free-standing ambulatory surgery centers, more than 45 ambulatory practices throughout the five boroughs of New York City, Westchester, and Long Island, as well as 31 affiliated community health centers. Physicians are affiliated with the Icahn School of Medicine, ranked among nation’s the top 20 medical schools both in National Institutes of Health funding and by U.S. News & World Report.
The Mount Sinai Health System has an extraordinary array of resources for the provision of compassionate, state-of-the-art care. The Health System is poised to identify and respond to the health-related needs across the diverse populations we serve.
The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
Through the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, the Mount Sinai Health System benefits from synergies with a distinguished academic medical center. Among the leading medical schools in the nation, the Icahn School of Medicine is at the forefront of medical and scientific training, biomedical research, and patient care. It is also one of several free-standing medical schools in the country that has developed independent, high-level graduate MD/PhD and MPH programs, as well as MS programs in biomedical sciences, genetic counseling, and clinical research. In all, the School trains more than 2,000 residents and fellows a year.
The Icahn School of Medicine is one of the top medical school recipients for National Institutes of Health funding and other grant receipts per investigator. Translational research, from new diagnostics and therapeutics to innovative tools and delivery systems, is at the leading edge of this work. The seven hospital campuses within the Health System offer Mount Sinai’s medical, graduate, and master’s students a wide range of clinical and research experiences. MD candidates train alongside specialists in the growing number of Clinical Institutes of Excellence throughout Mount Sinai, and students pursuing an MS or PhD in clinical research have more opportunities for clinical trial management and analysis, as well as in-depth epidemiological projects. Building on Mount Sinai’s large and very diverse patient population, graduate students have expanded opportunities in genomic sciences, bioinformatics, and all basic science areas.
