Michael B. Prystowsky,Department ChairUnique opportunities abound in Clinical and Experimental Pathology at the Montefiore Medical Center and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
Our mission is to deliver the highest quality of medical care through the use of state-of-the-art diagnostic procedures and the translation of new knowledge into the practice of Pathology. This mission is supported by a commitment to excellence in integrating research, education, clinical care, and community health to advance the field of knowledge in Medicine and Biology, and to train professionals who are prepared to meet existing, as well as future challenges to Medicine and Society
Montefiore Medical Center is the University Hospital for the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and has been its primary teaching affiliate since 1963. This long-standing academic relationship between two of the nation’s leading institutions attracts leaders in the world of medicine, promotes significant research programs investigating the mechanisms of disease and offers exceptional learning opportunities for students, residents and faculty.
In 1993, the Pathology faculty, staff and researchers at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore’s two teaching hospitals – the Henry and Lucy Moses Division and the Jack D. Weiler Hospital – were brought together to lay a foundation for the future. Today, the unified department stands proudly among the leaders of pathology within the United States.
Thanks to its unique collaboration with the Sue Golding Graduate Division the Department of Pathology has blazed a new path in medical, resident and graduate education.
The department is home to approximately 21 residents, 8 clinical fellows, 15 postdoctoral scholars, and 15 graduate students from various Ph.D. programs.
Our faculty members receive approximately $6,000,000 of federal funding to conduct basic, translational and clinical research in the mechanisms of disease. Our major programs include: Alzheimer’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, NeuroAIDS, Parasitology, Cancer Biology, Immunology, Vascular Biology, and Cytology and Cytogenetics.
The faculty works hard to foster genuine collaboration between basic and clinical investigators, inspire creativity, and facilitate the path of potential new treatment methods from laboratory to bedside. Many of our alumni continue to fulfill the founders’ dream.
Our clinical program provides outstanding care while fulfilling the needs of our referring doctors and their patients. We performed over 10 million tests in 2010.
Our laboratories provide services to diverse settings throughout the Bronx and lower Westchester County including acute care academic medical centers, large medical groups, schools, shelters, nursing homes, hospices, emergency departments and solo practitioners.
The campus is minutes from outstanding parks, marinas and recreational facilities, a stone’s throw from the new Yankee Stadium and a 20-minute subway ride from Times Square. Welcome to the Department of Pathology at the Montefiore Medical Center and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
