Welcome to the Albert Einstein College of Medicine! We are so excited to welcome you to our family. Orientation week is designed to help you start your first year of medical school with all of the tools you'll need to succeed.

Einstein's Orientation week is a mandatory week-long schedule of events that is designed to introduce you to the Einstein campus, campus resources, services and the community, the rigor of academic life, our rich culture, and the exciting diversity of Einstein and the community around us. You will have the opportunity to participate in academic, social, and community events. We have planned a fun-filled week of programs and activities that will help you get better acquainted with Einstein, your classmates and your new role as a medical student.

Please take a look at our Orientation checklist to get started. Soon, you will be able to join your class page to chat with the Orientation Committee, ask questions, and get to know your new class.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email Mohanlall Teloki, Director of Student Life.
