Division of Pulmonary Medicine

Einstein Pulmonary Medicine Fellowship Training Sites

Fellows are trained at two campuses located in the North Bronx, about 15 minutes apart by car. A free shuttle service runs frequently between the sites. Both campuses are easily reached from neighboring Westchester County, Long Island, or Manhattan.

Montefiore Medical Center ("West Campus") is a private, not-for-profit hospital with over 700 medical beds and over 40 intensive care beds. The pulmonary in-patient consultation service offers exposure to a broad range of pulmonary diseases among patients with a range of sociodemographic
characteristics.  The Sleep Medicine program is currently expanding capacity and moving to a new facility on the Montefiore campus

East Campus is composed of two facilities, the Jack D. Weiler Hospital and Jacobi Medical Center. Weiler Hospital is a large community hospital staffed by faculty of the medical school. Jacobi Hospital is a large city hospital with over 500 medical beds and 32 ICU beds, and includes a 36-bed chest ward. Jacobi is also a level 1 trauma center and is home to the region's burn unit.

Each hospital has busy pulmonary consulting services, pulmonary function laboratories, bronchoscopy suites and chest clinics. The Pulmonary Division includes 10 full-time physicians and several part-time or voluntary attendings.
