Einstein was a perfect match for me who was looking for
a big program, with lots of fellowships and full-time faculty members,
which serves underserved population. On top of that I really liked how it
residents interact to one another.

My greatest attraction to Einstein is the people, I enjoy working with the residents and faculty. I like working at a large academic center with all the subspecialty groups. I also like the population we serve and the fact that every day at work is a new adventure. Living in New York City is a major plus too

I chose Einstein because I am a native New York-er, and I feel like the Bronx is the heart of the city, allowing me exposure to issues that underserved communities face, while also providing the level of education of an academic institution. Truly the best of both worlds. I feel that at this program I am not only serving the community, but am an integral part of the community.

I'm New York born and raised, and wanted to stay
in the area. When I was deciding where I wanted to go, I really believed it
when I was told I would see anything and everything there is to see in an
OB/GYN residency here at Einstein. I was looking for a busy program with a
diversity of patients and pathologies that would always keep me on my toes,
and I found it in the Bronx! Also, the people I met here were down-to-earth
and enjoyed working together, the department was genuinely warm and
welcoming to new faces, and Attendings and residents seemed to have a
casual, friendly relationship. A healthy mix of male and female Attending
staff was an unexpected plus.

As an Einstein graduate I knew the high level of
training I'd receive in this residency. I understood that it would be hard
work and long hours, like any residency, but at the end I'd be extremely
well trained. The program presents an extraordinary array of patients,
from patients with limited resources and little medical care, to patients
all the way at the other end of the spectrum. The wide variety of surgical
opportunities, ample research support, supportive faculty, and tremendous
residents are the icing on the cake.

At first, I chose Einstein because I figured we would get great experience here, both clinically and academically. Now that I am here, I am very impressed by the attendings and residents. I made lots of friends, and we have a lot of fun here, even while we're at work. The days can be crazy, but it's a great time all around, and I'm very happy I chose Einstein!

I chose Einstein because I felt that with all the
resources available to me at this institution (clinical load, research
opportunities, patient population) I could become the best doctor I can be,
in addition to the fact that I wanted to live in new York. Now I'm glad I
chose Einstein because I love everyone I work with including my
co-residents, fellows, and attendings.

I chose Einstein for many reasons. I wanted a large residency in an urban environment with an under served population - all of which are definitely true of Einstein. Family Planning was also very important to me and Einstein's dedicated rotations to this topic were appealing. In the end this residency had all of the academics I was looking for and the people can't be beat!

I grew up in the Bronx, so coming to Einstein was
essentially coming home. Besides that, even as a sub-I, I found the
environment to be very collegial and I knew I would feel at home here.
Intern year is challenging in any program, but I have felt supported by my
co-interns and seniors at Einstein. No one can argue about the complexity
and volume of work that we do here, but the seniors and faculty in this
program are invested in our success. The faculty members here are
approachable, and you can actually present cases to attendings as an
intern. It is busy and you can expect to work harder than you ever have in
your life, but at the end of your training, you will be ready to face
anything....because you will see almost everything here.

The exceptional faculty dedicated to teaching and the extremely diverse patient population were some of the few things that attracted to me to Albert Einstein's Obstetrics and Gynecology residency program. At Albert Einstein there is a strong dedication to the advancement of women's health, and there is exposure to almost every obstetrical gynecological subspecialty. When I was applying to residency I knew that I wanted to go to a program in which I would be able to see it all and do it all and I can say with confidence that Albert Einstein will be able to provide me that experience.
Nickolas Teigen, M.D., Administrative Chief Resident

I chose Einstein because of the diverse patient
population and the many complex pathologies that one is exposed to in the
Bronx. Also, the ability to train in all of the OBGYN sub-specialties made
this program quite unique.
