Education and Training
Department members are involved in a wide variety of educational activities in the medical school, the graduate school, at the fellowship level, and with CME. Faculty teach segments of required courses for medical students as well as electives. Our teaching helps medical students acquire knowledge and skills enabling them to improve the health of their patients and the communities they serve.
The Department has helped shape the Medical College’s Masters degree in Clinical Investigation and faculty teach both in its core curriculum and its elective courses. Department faculty also teach residents and other health professionals in a variety of other venues, in the Medical College, the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, and affiliate hospitals.
The department runs fellowship programs in General Preventive Medicine, Public Health Research, and Addiction Medicine. Students in these programs are mentored by department faculty while obtaining masters degrees in the Medical College’s Clinical Investigation program. The Medical Ethics division also sponsors a postdoctoral fellowship in Biomedical Ethics in conjunction with the Hospital for Special Surgery’s Department of Rheumatology.
Department faculty are involved in creating a parallel medical college curriculum in Qatar, with some classes being televised there. Also, some faculty members are based full time in Qatar. The Office of International Medical Education coordinates international educational programs for student exchange and collaborative projects.
The Department and all its Divisions also sponsor regular grand rounds and seminars about current research topics that are open to the public. Speakers include department members as well as invited guests. Most of these seminars provide CME credit.
