Albert Einstein College of Medicine is a research-intensive medical school. For more than 60 years, our diverse faculty and staff have set the standard for excellence in medical and graduate education and patient-centered clinical care, and have made major contributions to scientific research enhancing human health in our communities and beyond. Our mission is to prepare a diverse body of students to become knowledgeable, compassionate physicians and innovative scientific investigators, and to create new knowledge.
Albert Einstein College of Medicine offers one of the nation’s largest programs for medical education. During the 2020-2021 academic year, the College of Medicine is home to 732 M.D. students, 190 Ph.D. students, 120 students in the combined M.D.-Ph.D. program, and 250 postdoctoral research fellows at our Belfer Institute for Advanced Biomedical Studies.
