About Mount Sinai School of Medicine

Commitment to excellence in research, education, and patient care forms the foundation that makes Mount Sinai School of Medicine (MSSM) in Manhattan one of the world’s foremost centers for medical and scientific training.

Mount Sinai’s educational philosophy reflects the ever-changing face of contemporary science — the most important thing a medical or science student can learn is how to continue learning. The educational experience at Mount Sinai is designed to help each student reach his or her maximum potential. We graduate well-rounded individuals who are highly skilled in medicine as well as compassionate caregivers.

Our innovative curriculum — one of the most progressive in the country — stresses the humanistic and ethical aspects of medical practice as well as problem-solving strategies. Students learn clinical care working side-by-side with world-renowned doctors and gain experience in the laboratory from scientists answering fundamental questions about human disease. Because successful and empathetic communication is critical to effective patient and doctor relationships, we have established programs, such as the Morchand Center for Clinical Competence, to help students and physicians develop superb communication skills.

The Graduate School of Biological Sciences

Our Graduate School of Biological Sciences trains students to uncover the underlying mechanisms that cause disease and acquire the knowledge necessary to develop new life-saving treatments. The Graduate School confers degrees of PhD, MD/PhD, and MSc.

Contemporary science involves multidisciplinary efforts, the development of new fields of study, and the application of fundamental knowledge to important biomedical problems. To prepare students for this new era in research, the Graduate School of Biological Sciences offers each student a wealth of options for developing a rigorous program in scientific research to meet his or her individual goals.

Patient care

Exceptional patient care is a hallmark of The Mount Sinai Hospital and one of the keystones of our School of Medicine. A seamless connection between the School and the Hospital sets Mount Sinai apart from most centers of scientific inquiry by facilitating the transfer of research developments to patient care and clinical insights, and then back to the laboratory for further investigation.

As a regional leader in numerous areas, including geriatrics, cardiology, organ transplantation, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, gene therapy, AIDS, spinal cord and traumatic brain injury, hemophilia, high-risk pregnancy, neonatal specialty care, and pediatric respiratory disease, the Hospital and School of Medicine work together to remain at the cutting edge of modern medicine.

Mount Sinai was the first U.S. medical school to establish an academic department of geriatrics, as well as departments of environmental and occupational medicine. Mount Sinai is also one of the few schools of medicine in the United States to have a department of health evidence and policy to focus on outcome measures.

Innovation infuses every area

A wide range of institutional programs encourages and reinforces innovation in key areas of patient care, education, and research. The following departments and centers exemplify innovation at Mount Sinai:

  • The Department of Oncological Sciences encourages multidisciplinary investigations of the causation, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer and allied diseases.

  • The General Clinical Research Center supports clinical research activities in a discrete, multidepartmental program.

  • The Department of Gene and Cell Medicine fosters scientific and technological developments to expedite the transfer and expression of genes to treat disease.

  • The Center for Jewish Genetic Diseases is the only center in the world devoted to the care of patients suffering from those diseases that affect Ashkenazi Jews more frequently than individuals in the general population.

  • The Fishberg Department of Neuroscience explores the anatomy and pathology of the nervous system and the molecular and cellular mechanisms of neuronal function.

  • The Recanati/Miller Transplantation Institute unites Mount Sinai’s programs in adult and pediatric liver, kidney, pancreas, heart, and lung transplantation to enhance clinical excellence, facilitate research, and advance the education and training of future leaders in transplantation.

  • The Zena and Michael A. Wiener Cardiovascular Institute and the Marie-Josée and Henry R. Kravis Center for Cardiovascular Health coordinate diverse clinical services, educational programs, and scientific research in the fight against heart disease.
