Albert Einstein College of Medicine is a research-intensive medical school located in the Morris Park neighborhood of the Bronx in New York City. Einstein operates as an independent degree-granting institute since 2018, and is part of the integrated health care system, Montefiore Health System (Montefiore Medicine),[1] which includes Montefiore Medical Center.

Einstein ranks 13th among top U.S. medical schools for graduate success in academic medicine and biomedical research (i.e., awards, publications, grants, and clinical trials).[2] Einstein is well rated in clinical care, and its NIH funding per investigator consistently ranks among the highest in the nation (7th among US universities in 2019).[3][4][5]

Einstein offers a M.D. program, a Ph.D. program in the biomedical sciences and clinical investigation, and two Master of Science (M.S.) degrees. In 2020, the MD program matriculated 183 students from 8,077 applicants.[6] The median undergraduate GPA of matriculants is 3.83, and the median MCAT score is in the 93rd percentile.

The Einstein MSTP is one of the oldest, largest, and most distinguished MD/PhD programs in the U.S.[7] Einstein was one of the original three MD/PhD programs to be awarded funding from the National Institutes of Health in 1964, and has received continuous funding since then.[8] The MSTP is currently training over 100 MD/PhD students.[9]
