    Albert Einstein College of Medicine is a research-intensive medical school. For more than 60 years, our diverse faculty and staff have set the standard for excellence in medical and graduate education and patient-centered clinical care, and have made major contributions to scientific research enhancing human health in our communities and beyond. Our mission is to prepare a diverse body of students to become knowledgeable, compassionate physicians and innovative scientific investigators, and to create new knowledge.

    Albert Einstein College of Medicine offers one of the nation’s largest programs for medical education.

More than 9,000 Einstein alumni are among the nation’s foremost clinicians, biomedical scientists and medical educators.
