Forty-six Einstein students (23.2%) will enter categorical or primary care internal medicine programs in July, exceeding the national average of 19.1%. Historically, Einstein students have entered Internal Medicine at a rate higher than the national average.

"Internal Medicine is alive and well at Montefiore Einstein. We continue to have a very high level of interest by our student body, despite sliding national trends, and our house staff program remains extremely strong, particularly in Primary Care/Social Internal Medicine. Our Categorical Program is stronger than ever," said Dr. Victor Schuster, Chairman of the Department of Medicine.
