      • Einstein Medical Center, originally known as The Jewish Hospital for the Aged, Infirm and Destitute, opened its doors in 1865. The suffering he witnessed in the wake of the Civil War moved Abraham Sulzberger, the hospital's founder, to open a hospital that cared for all persons in need regardless of their race, nationality or creed. While the hospital has grown from its original 20-bed facility into a major full-service, academic healthcare network, our mission remains as important today as it was in 1865. Then as now, the hospital's mission also emphasized the Medical Center's commitment to education and research. The first resident physician came to Einstein Medical Center in 1865 and that tradition continues today. We offer a categorical residency training program in Internal Medicine, as well as fellowship training in twelve subspecialty areas.  We also provide an outstanding experience for those interested in a Preliminary Year of Internal Medicine.  As a major affiliate of Thomas Jefferson Medical School, we continuously train second-year, third-year and fourth-year Jefferson medical students.

        Our residency curriculum is uniquely structured to allow residents to participate in meaningful scholarly activity during their residencies. The Department of Medicine's 90+ full-time faculty members are highly committed to the education of residents and students. The Department leadership understands the needs of the residents and is directly involved in the educational programs. Should you decide to obtain training in our Internal Medicine Program you will receive outstanding training. You will be well prepared for a career in primary care or to go on to subspecialty training. Each year our residents are accepted into outstanding subspecialty fellowship training programs. Residents in our Preliminary Medicine Program have the flexibility in their curriculum to accommodate training in other specialty areas.

      • Message
      • I would like to personally welcome you to Einstein Medical Center's Internal Medicine Residency Program web site. The goal of our residency program is to provide outstanding training in internal medicine. Individuals who choose to train at Einstein Medical Center are provided excellent clinical training experiences and educational opportunities within a warm, friendly environment.

        The Department of Medicine sponsors a host of postgraduate training programs including a categorical internal medicine program, a one-year program in preliminary medicine and ACGME approved fellowship training in many of the internal medicine subspecialties including cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, geriatrics, infectious diseases, interventional cardiology, nephrology, pulmonary/critical care, and rheumatology. Fellowship training is also available in hepatology, heart failure and transplant nephrology.

        Whether you are interested in primary clinical practice or a career in academic medicine you will be well prepared after the rigors of training at Einstein Medical Center. The Department of Medicine has a long history of providing a well-balanced curriculum that prepares residents for careers in general internal medicine or subspecialty fellowships. Our program offers outstanding core rotations in general internal medicine and the subspecialties. Throughout the training program, the principles and practice of evidence-based medicine are emphasized and the most up-to-date information technology is made available at the bedside. Our commitment to resident participation in scholarly activity is evidenced by the dedicated research rotations included in the three-year curriculum. We are proud of our extraordinary conference series (morning report, noon conference, summer conference, grand rounds, firm conferences) and board review course that is designed specifically for our residents.

        I would encourage you to utilize this web site to learn more about our programs. As you navigate your way through our site, please feel free to call or e-mail me with any questions you might have. Information on how to contact our program may be found in the application information section. I look forward to the possibility of our working together and to helping you lay the foundation for a highly successful career in internal medicine. Best of luck as you begin your search for postgraduate training.
