About
The Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University is a premier, research-intensive medical school dedicated to innovative biomedical investigation and to the development of ethical and compassionate physicians and scientists. Inspired by the words of our namesake, we welcome students, faculty and staff from diverse backgrounds who strive to enhance human health in the community and beyond.
Albert Einstein College of Medicine offers one of the nation's largest programs for medical education. During the 2012-2013 academic year, the College of Medicine is home to 742 M.D. students, 245 Ph.D. students, 116 students in the combined M.D./Ph.D. program, and 360 postdoctoral research fellows at our Belfer Institute for Advanced Biomedical Studies. More than 8,000 Einstein alumni are among the nation's foremost clinicians, biomedical scientists, and medical educators.
When the medical school opened its doors in 1955, the New York Times was already noting that "the new medical school's distinguished and talented faculty assured the institution of a place in the ranks of the great medical schools in the world." This prophecy has been more than fulfilled in the ensuing years.
Among its pioneering educational initiatives, Einstein was one of the first major medical schools to integrate bedside experience with learning, bringing first-year students into contact with patients and linking classroom study to case experience. Einstein also led the way in the development of bioethics as an accepted academic discipline in medical school curricula, was the first private medical school in New York City to establish an academic department of family medicine, and was the first to create a residency program in internal medicine with an emphasis on women's health.
