Medicine Residency Program
Welcome to Jacobi Medical Center Internal Medicine Residency Program. We are one of the two University Programs of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine located in the Bronx, NY.
A Message from our Chair
On behalf of the Department of Medicine at Jacobi Medical Center and the Jack D. Weiler Hospital of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, I am delighted to learn of your interest in our Internal Medicine Residency Training Program. As Chairman, I view the Residency Program as critical to the department's mission. In many respects, the quality of a Department of Medicine is directly reflected by the quality of its residency. We, therefore, continue to invest considerable time and effort in developing and nurturing our program.
At Jacobi & Weiler, every effort is made to empower you — the resident — to achieve your individual learning goals. Our two teaching institutions are ultra-modern patient care facilities with state-of the art equipment and fully electronic medical records. We serve an extraordinarily diverse urban patient population. We have a distinguished teaching faculty who hold academic appointments at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Opportunities to participate in clinical or basic laboratory research abound. There is a comprehensive educational schedule including daily morning reports, attending rounds, board review, noon conferences and intern-specific conferences.
Our institutions are warm and caring, and unequivocally committed to safe, effective, efficient, comprehensive evidence-based medical care…truly notable in this era of "corporate" medicine. We are very much concerned about and supportive of our trainees. We are interested in your professional and career development, but we also want you to have a life outside of the hospital.
Our web pages provide an in-depth overview of the residency program offered by our department. I encourage you to review them carefully and to plan to visit our training program to meet with us.
From day one, the program will prepare you to become a well-rounded physician with leadership skills, compassion, integrity and critical thinking. By working with a diverse population, and with the right degree of resident autonomy and faculty supervision, very soon you will gain incredible clinical experience. In your personal marathon, you will always find at your side dedicated housestaff whose vigorous enthusiasm for hard work, learning, and teaching is matched only by their collegiality and support for one other.

While applying for residency, I knew I wanted a program with a strong clinical and educational curriculum; one that provided the right amount of exposure while not being overwhelming. I also wanted a program where faculty were supportive, while providing me enough autonomy to grow. Above all, I hoped that the environment would be conducive to learning and, since I knew residency would be tough anyway, I wished for a program where the house staff camaraderie was stellar.Today, three years after, with the additional benefit of hindsight, I am glad I made the right decision.
Oriade Adeoye, Class of 2016
When it came to deciding upon a residency program I felt I needed to join a institution where I would receive a terrific education, gain valuable experience which would help mold me into a capable, intelligent, and compassionate physician. At the end of the evaluation process I saw Jacobi Medical Center as the best choice for me.
