Albert Einstein College of Medicine is a research-intensive medical school. On March 15, 1953, the day following his 74th birthday, Professor Albert Einstein formally agreed to permit his name to be used for the first medical school to be built in New York City since 1897. For more than 60 years, Einstein’s 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.
In September 2015, Einstein became a part of Montefiore Health System. As we enter what will surely be a golden age of medicine, the College of Medicine remains steadfast in its core missions: educating students to become caring, curing physicians and world-class scientists, and fostering pioneering programs in biomedical and translational research that will lead to superb patient care.
