What are some factors that make the residency program unique?

While our program emphasizes academic and clinical training, there is an equal emphasis on well-being. Wellness days are integrated into the academic curriculum. The weekly didactics will collaborate with the Internal Medicine Residency Program to allow for interprofessional development. The program offers a wide variety and complexity of clinical experiences in a brand-new hospital and outpatient continuity clinic under the supervision of a diverse faculty in a great location with amazing schools!

What makes your new program distinct from other new programs?

While our residency program is newly established, our program director has several years of experience in the role. Dr. Angras has the expertise to create a vigorous program while providing a collegial, friendly training environment. 

Unlike other newly developed programs, our program’s sponsoring institution, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, has the largest graduate medical education programs in the country. With the resources and support from Mount Sinai, the program is well-positioned to succeed.
