School Overview

School Info

The Albert Einstein College of Medicine is one of the nation's premier institutions for medical education, basic research and clinical investigation. A full-time faculty of more than 2,000 teaches, delivers health care and conducts research in every major biomedical specialty.

Curriculum

The 19-month long pre-clerkship curriculum is devoted primarily to interdisciplinary biomedical science courses taking place in lecture halls, conference rooms and laboratories. There are also courses in which students interact with patients, learn the basics of patient-doctor communication, acquire physical examination and diagnostic skills, study medical ethics, and learn how psychosocial and cultural factors affect patient behavior. Medical Spanish courses are offered in both first and second year as electives. During the last two years of the curriculum, students learn how to apply biomedical science knowledge and clinical skills to problems of human disease and illness in both inpatient and outpatient settings. The third year consists of clerkships in Internal Medicine, Surgery, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Family Medicine, Geriatrics, and Radiology; and the fourth year consists of a required Sub-internship in Medicine or Pediatrics, clerkships in Neurology and Ambulatory Care, and 7 months of electives. Small-group case based conferences dealing with issues of prevention, ethics and professionalism are scheduled throughout the clerkship year.

Facilities

The medical school is affiliated with five hospital centers: Montefiore Medical Center, The University Hospital of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine; Beth Israel Medical Center, the University Hospital and Manhattan Campus for the Albert Einstein College of Medicine; North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System, the Manhasset and New Hyde Park campuses of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine; Jacobi Medical Center; and the Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center. It is also affiliated with three mental health facilities and four long-term care facilities. Through its extensive affiliation network, Einstein runs the largest post-graduate medical training program in the United States, offering some 150 residency programs to more than 2,500 physicians in training.

"Einstein has a bunch of charmless weirdos doing their interviewing. Mine was no exception. She had the demeanor of someone who would rather be almost anywhere in the world than in a room with me. Her questions were asked in a half-hearted, going-through-the-motions kind of way. At one point she said in a foggy sort of way, "So do you like watching sports on t.v. and that kind of thing." Huh?

"I love living in the Bronx, engaging in community work and interacting with Bronx patients daily. The poor, Black and Brown neighborhoods of the Bronx carry deep histories of resistance and struggle, and there's a lot to learn for those who understand their own struggles as being interconnected with those faced by their patients and neighbors." | Report Response

"True P/F Curriculum, global health and research opportunities, commitment to diversity, impact the community, cheap subsidized housing" | Report Response

"The medical school administration is deeply Islamophobic, racist, xenophobic, and authoritarian. They see themselves as adversaries to students of color, burdened by "diversity quotas" (not a real thing). They're conservative, predominantly white, and entirely upper-class. As an outspoken and socially/politically conscious student, especially as someone who engages in solidarity struggles with people of color, you will be tormented by the faculty. The faculty has a large cohort of white, wealthy students who follow them devoutly and work to oppress marginalized students at the level of student government and class forums -- these students are largely "legacy" status themselves, i.e. have family who are physicians at Montefiore/ members of the Einstein/Montefiore administration. The student body is predominantly white, almost entirely wealthy, and treat the Bronx like a miserable wasteland. You'll hear them refer to the Bronx in derogatory terms on a daily basis, though most will not venture outside the Morris Park neighborhood during their entire 4 years. If students have any downtime, they will take the BxM express bus directly to Manhattan. Most of them view living in the Bronx as an ordeal that they've been condemned to -- and this is all fine, really, because the people of the Bronx really do not need to endure more interactions with these stuck-up kids than they already do, but if you're FROM the Bronx and thinking about going to Einstein, this is an important thing to be aware of. In terms of academics, Einstein fails to provide adequate educational experiences to its student body. Collaborative sessions where students are meant to work together through clinical cases are seen as a joke, and used by "gunner" students as simply a way to show off and intimidate fellow students. A majority of students are intensely competitive, as the vast majority are aiming to go into high-paying specialties. In fact, it isn't uncommon to come across a group of students sitting together in a common area during 2nd or 3rd year, comparing different salaries for various specialties/subspecialties. Primary care is hugely stigmatized -- which is a problem shared by Montefiore as well as Einstein -- and you'll even work under a number of Montefiore attendings who treat you with disdain if you tell them of your intention to pursue primary care Peds/IM/FM. Furthermore, the Einstein deans of student affairs will not offer you the same resources and guidance if you do not intend on pursuing a hospital-based specialty (as opposed to primary care), and really lack awareness about specialties outside of hospitalist and subspecialty IM." | Report Response

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
