The Albert Einstein College of Medicine is a private, nonprofit, research-intensive medical school in the Morris Park neighborhood of the Bronx, New York City, United States. Founded in 1953, Einstein operates as an independent degree-granting institution as part of the integrated healthcare Montefiore Health System (Montefiore Medicine)[1] and also has affiliation with Jacobi Medical Center.

Admission to Einstein is highly competitive, with one of the lowest acceptance rates among medical schools in the United States (3.3% in 2021).[2] 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), and its NIH funding per investigator consistently ranks among the highest in the nation (7th among US universities in 2019).[3][4][5][6]

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 2021, the MD program matriculated 183 students from 9,773 applicants.[7] Einstein’s MD program employs a holistic admissions process; the median undergraduate GPA of matriculants is 3.83, and the median MCAT score is in the 93rd percentile.[8]

The Medical Scientist Training Program at Einstein is one of the oldest, largest, and most distinguished MD/PhD programs in the U.S.[9] 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.[10] The program is currently training over 100 MD/PhD students.[11]

The college is named for the world-renowned physicist and humanitarian Albert Einstein.
