Advanced Medical Training for Future Specialists

Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY offers a wide range of fellowship programs for physicians who wish to specialize in a particular area of care.

As a fellow, you will work closely with our resident staff and often function as junior attendings. In addition to clinical training, you will participate in a well-organized didactic program of seminars and teaching conferences, which provide a balanced and complete education. Weekly conferences, daily teaching rounds, grand rounds, and mortality & morbidity conferences are just some of the regularly scheduled sessions.

Research plays an important role in your development as a fellow, with research project requirements particular to each program. Throughout the year, academic conferences and presentations by distinguished scholars, visiting professors and physicians take place.

Our Office of Academic Affairs also conducts Development Seminars over the course of the yea addressing a range of  topics and issues which affect house-staff training and development. Sessions may include stress management, practice management, test-taking skills, substance abuse, patient/physician communication, cultural diversity, sexual harassment and ethical issues.
