Teaching

The Mount Sinai Visiting Doctors Program provides training to over 200 medical students, residents and fellows every year, including visiting trainees from institutions around the country and nations abroad.

Every resident in Internal Medicine at Mount Sinai spends one month with the program visiting patients in their homes and reflecting on what it truly means to be a physician entrusted with the lives of other human beings.

By observing and giving medical care to patients in their homes, trainees gain valuable perspective and an appreciation of the many medical, social, economic, and emotional challenges patients and their families face. Curricula in elder abuse, assistive devices, palliative care and literature & medicine supplement the trainees’ education in home care.
