PRACTICE WITH PASSION.

The Institute for Family Health welcomes medical students interested in gaining first-hand experience providing primary care in medically underserved communities. We offer medical student rotations at each of our three family medicine residency programs:

Mid-Hudson Family Practice Residency Program (Kingston, NY): Third and fourth year medical students rotate at various clinical sites including the Kingston Hospital, the Ellenville Hospital, and the Institute’s Family Health Centers in Kingston, New Paltz, Ellenville, Hyde Park, and Port Ewen. Third year rotations in Family Medicine and fourth year electives in Family Medicine and Inpatient Medicine are available. More information and application forms

Primary Care Scholars Program at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS): In partnership with the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai we developed the Primary Care Scholars Program. The program prepares the next generation of primary care physicians, to meet the rising health needs of local and global communities. We do this by providing core training, mentorship, and longitudinal experiences in primary care. We recruit medical school applicants from diverse personal and professional backgrounds who are committed to becoming leaders in primary care while working with underserved populations.
