Mount Sinai has a rich academic history. Mount Sinai became a teaching hospital in 1953, when it established its first medical residency program. Today, it is one of a select few original statutory teaching hospitals in the state of Florida helping to assure that our community has talented, well-trained doctors now and in the future. We bring together the best and brightest minds in medicine, creating a challenging environment where emerging doctors are trained by faculty who are well-versed in the latest medicine based on the most current scientific data. Our academic mission attracts leaders in all fields and specialties to our medical center and develops dedicated new doctors with diverse backgrounds and skills who often stay to serve our region.
Each year, our institution trains approximately 160 doctors in Miami Beach.
Mount Sinai Medical Center is located on Miami Beach and overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway. Many of our medical education students live on or close to Miami Beach, where they enjoy year-round warm weather, easy access to beaches and entertainment.
