The Einstein-Montefiore Primary Care and Social Internal Medicine programs train exceptional general internists to provide care for marginalized and underserved populations. Residents come from diverse backgrounds, professional and personal interests, and experiences.
With similar missions and a common leadership, the Primary Care and Social Internal Medicine programs provide comprehensive clinical and curricular experiences in inpatient and ambulatory medicine, behavioral medicine, clinical epidemiology, clinical reasoning, community-oriented primary care, global health and human rights. With close mentorship from dedicated faculty, residents provide care to an indigent urban and immigrant community in the South Bronx, and participate intensively in community- and health-center based advocacy, service, and research projects.
The Social Internal Medicine Program is a unique, cross-disciplinary model of residency training with a focus on generalism and community-oriented primary care. Residents interact with colleagues in Family Medicine and Pediatrics and categorical medicine, forging a special affiliation beyond hospital walls.
The Primary Care Program has been recognized for its teaching innovations in ambulatory education, clinical epidemiology, and global health.
Residents of both programs are regularly identified as leaders, representing a significant portion of the Internal Residency Program’s chief residents over the past 20 years. Graduates go on to careers as leaders in clinical medicine, education, administration, research, and advocacy.
