Watch a brief video of Dr. Grayson discussing Einstein's medical education program including student research opportunities, hands-on clinical training, and curriculum changes focusing on humanism.

The deans, directors, and staff of the Office of Medical Education ("OME") bring many years of experience and dedication to the tasks of overseeing curricular content and ensuring its efficient delivery, providing appropriate electronic resources to enhance both faculty teaching and student learning, monitoring educational outcomes through a comprehensive program of course and clerkship evaluation, addressing the needs of our under-represented minority medical students, and providing faculty with the resources to enhance their skills as medical educators.

The OME oversees the Ruth L. Gottesman Clinical Skills Center, a state-of-the-art facility built in 2009 to aid in the teaching and assessment of students’ clinical skills. The office also manages the school’s new Education Center, which fuses innovation in technology and flexible spaces designed to promote interactive large and small group learning.

 

Educational Mission

The Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University prepares physicians who will excel in both the science and the art of medicine. Our founding mandate has been to combine the pursuit of scientific excellence with the social mission to improve human health through engagement in our local, national, and global communities.

StudentsEinstein’s dynamic curriculum offers its students the ability to combine a solid foundation in the biomedical and population health sciences and rigorous, hands-on clinical training with the flexibility to pursue their interests in research and to meet the healthcare needs of underserved populations in the Bronx, the greater New York metropolitan area, and beyond. Einstein attracts a diverse student body and provides a collegial and collaborative environment that fosters our students’ growth as future clinicians, educators, physician scientists, and leaders in the field.

Ours is the only institution in the world to which Albert Einstein agreed to give his name. In addition to his stature as a scientist, Einstein’s moral and compassionate views on human affairs place him clearly in the camp of philosopher and humanist as well as scientist. Our students and faculty - indeed, all members of our community - continue to honor his legacy. Our graduates are committed to providing exceptional and compassionate clinical care as well as to the lifelong pursuit of biomedical knowledge that will improve the standard of medical care for all.
