A Medical Education Revolution
Albert Einstein College of Medicine recruited its first class of just 56 students and began instruction in the fall of 1955.
The Clinical Beginning
The early years were particularly exciting, with talented, vibrant, and mainly young faculty at the new College, and a modern new hospital.
Dr. London successfully chaired and developed the Department for 15 years, and moved to Boston in 1970.
The Einstein-Montefiore Merger
In 1980, the Departments of Medicine at Einstein and Montefiore were merged.
Programs of the Department of Medicine
Major programs in medical student, residency, and specialty fellowship training; clinical care; and research.
Residency (Post-Graduate Medical Education)
A major investment in the teaching and training of residents in Internal Medicine.
Fellowships (Subspecialty Training)
Fellowships were established in the traditional medical subspecialties early; among the most successful were those in Gastroenterology, Hematology, Infectious Diseases, and Nephrology.
Einstein’s Department of Medicine has a distinguished research record with many notable accomplishments during its first quarter-century.
