Education & Training
As one of the largest medical residency programs in the country, Montefiore provides postgraduate clinical training to more than 1,400 residents across 150 accredited residency and fellowship programs.
Montefiore's physicians, at the forefront of their fields, actively mentor and cultivate a new generation of leaders committed to healthcare that is both excellent and equitable. Residents and other healthcare professionals receive a unique opportunity for hands-on training in one of the most diverse urban areas in the country—one where the population is global, the disease burden is high, and the need is great.
Our progressive focus on comprehensive rather than fragmented care provides the ideal training ground for healthcare leaders of the future. To remain on the cutting-edge of training, we develop and expand programs that advance teamwork, communication and decision-making. These programs, coupled with Montefiore's mission and vision draw residents from top medical schools, including Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Harvard Medical School and Yale School of Medicine, who are particularly committed to increasing access to excellent care in an underserved population.
Those who have trained at Montefiore currently work at a number of leading academic medical centers throughout the country, including Montefiore, itself. Forty-six percent of our doctors—including Steven Safyer, President and CEO; Philip O. Ozuah, PhD, MD, Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer, Montefiore, Catherine C. Skae, MD, Vice President for Graduate Medical Education, Montefiore Medical Center; and several other Montefiore leaders—have trained at Montefiore.
