The Broader Medical School Affiliate Network

As the Medical College has expanded its clinical base beyond the Bronx with affiliations all over the New York metropolitan area, the department has proceeded in step with affiliations such as Bronx Lebanon Hospital, Beth Israel Medical Center in Manhattan and Long Island Jewish Medical Center. Each has an Ob/Gyn program led by senior faculty members who are either new to the department or are long standing faculty members. They provide Einstein with a standard of excellence to be envied throughout the greater New York community.
