Einstein Medical Center offers residents and students the resources and advantages of a major teaching institution, without losing sight of the individual. Although we are among the largest tertiary care facilities in Pennsylvania, the Medical Center is a place where each resident and student's individual educational pursuits are of prime importance. Our mission is not only to prepare residents for their chosen career paths but to provide them with the tools to deliver quality patient care.
Einstein Medical Center is and has been a major teaching affiliate of Thomas Jefferson University since July 2000. Einstein participates in Jefferson's physical diagnosis course for second year medical students and provides a broad spectrum of clinical clerkships and elective rotations for third and fourth year medical students. Einstein faculty members actively participate in both resident and student education. In addition, Einstein residents play a vital role in the teaching and supervision of medical students.
A Major Teaching Affiliate of Thomas Jefferson University
More than 400 residents across 30-some residency and fellowship programs share in the learning process. Einstein Medical Center is an active participant in the education of new physicians, offering highly regarded residency and fellowship training programs in many specialty and subspecialty areas. With its extensive array of services and programs, Einstein Medical Center is positioned to provide depth and diversity in medical education. We sponsor graduate medical education programs spanning more than 23 different medical specialties, as well as dentistry and podiatry. Our programs are designed to provide the scope, expertise and hands-on experience to prepare for a career in the rapidly changing world of modern healthcare delivery.
Depth and Diversity in Medical Education
Grounded firmly in our mission, Einstein Healthcare Network has a strong, growing commitment to training and educating medical school students, graduates and practicing physicians and other healthcare professionals. To achieve this, Einstein is a place of discovery and achievement, attracting top professionals from over the world. Our commitment to research is reflected in well-funded programs of clinical and scientific research that complement patient care and medical education. Einstein has a century-long commitment to clinical research--one that began in 1916 in an effort to control an outbreak of infantile paralysis. Today, research is a vital component of a three-tiered mission that also includes quality patient care and education. In fact, more than 400 active clinical trials are underway throughout Einstein Healthcare Network today in a wide variety of investigative areas.
