Meet the Chairman

Dear Applicant:

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.
