Who We Are
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 freestanding 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. Building on The System’s large and very diverse patient population, graduate students have expanded opportunities in genomic sciences, bioinformatics, and all basic science areas.
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.
