Message from our Senior Associate Dean, Josh Nosanchuk, M.D.

I am thrilled to welcome you to MD education at Einstein! Our innovative curriculum integrates basic, health system, and clinical sciences throughout the student experience. The preclerkship curriculum is rich in interdisciplinary foundational biomedical sciences and systems-based courses. Importantly, Einstein students regularly and actively tackle challenging topics, such as health equity and social justice, which are major issues that patients in our Bronx communities routinely face. Our courses on service learning and scholarship build skills that foster professionalism, scholarship and advocacy as well as focusing on fostering collaboration with diverse individuals and groups. The introduction to clinical medicine course provides early and frequent experiences in doctor-patient communication, physical examination, and diagnostic skills, and highlights the need to individualize care to holistically support each patient. The clerkship year immerses students in our healthcare systems where they are actively included in all aspects of care. With the skills learned throughout their clerkships, senior students serve in an intern-like role with primary responsibility for their assigned patients during their two month-long acting internships. There are also myriad opportunities for individualization throughout the curriculum, from electives, volunteer activities, research experiences and global health program. Einstein students also regularly extend their tenure at Einstein to 5 years in order to pursue a Masters Degree in Clinical and Translational Research, Public Health, or Bioethics as well as to take a year for a global health or other research experience.

I am regularly deeply humbled by and extremely proud of the accomplishments of our students- from research publications to volunteerism to advocacy activities to leadership roles in national societies and more. The Einstein graduate is a compassionate, team-oriented critical thinker who understands health promotion and disease management. The Einstein graduate demonstrates competence in seven key roles: healer, scientist, advocate, educator, colleague, role model, and lifelong learner.

I am excited to share more about our exciting educational opportunities! My door is (almost) always open!
