The Icahn School of Medicine has around 560 students and a faculty-student ratio of just under 3 to 1. Aside from a traditional MD degree, the Icahn School offers PhD/MD, Humanities and Medicine (HuMed), and MPH programs. Other programs include ones in oral-maxillofacial surgery, biomedical sciences, genetic counseling, and clinical research.
The school’s curriculum is similar to other medical schools in the country. The first two years are spent studying medical sciences, and the second two years focus on clinical sciences. Third and fourth-years participate in clinical rotations at Mount Sinai Hospital, Elmhurst Hospital, the Mount Sinai Hospital of Queens, and the James J. Peters VA Medical Center in the Bronx. The curriculum is based on quality education, patient care, research, and community service. Some of the most popular areas of specialty are emergency medicine, orthopedic surgery, pediatrics, and diagnostic radiology.
The Icahn School was also praised by the American Medical Student Association for receiving high marks for their conflicts of interest policies in regards to pharmaceutical industry marketing. The Icahn School also runs the Mount Sinai Simulation HELPS Center (Human Education, Education and Evaluation Lab for Patient Study and Professional Study) in the Department of Anesthesiology.
The school also notably runs the Icahn Institute for Genomics and Multiscale Biology, which was the first facility to offer classes to medical students where they could fully sequence their genomes. The institution was also the first CLIA-certified next-generation sequencing lab in New York City. Students interested in being a part of an innovative school with top-notch facilities and research centers should look into the Icahn School of Medicine.
