Albert Einstein Medical Center


Einstein Medical Center offers residents and students the resources and advantages of a major teaching institution, without losing sight of the individual. Although we are among the largest tertiary care facilities in Pennsylvania, the Medical Center is a place where each resident and student’s individual educational pursuits are of prime importance. Our mission is not only to prepare residents for their chosen career paths but to provide them with the tools to deliver quality patient care.

Einstein Medical Center is and has been a major teaching affiliate of Thomas Jefferson University since July 2000. Einstein participates in Jefferson’s physical diagnosis course for second year medical students and provides a broad spectrum of clinical clerkships and elective rotations for third and fourth year medical students. Einstein faculty members actively participate in both resident and student education. In addition, Einstein residents play a vital role in the teaching and supervision of medical students.
