Graduate Medical Education at Sinai Hospital

LifeBridge Health offers graduate medical education to help develop the skills and expertise of future leaders in healthcare.



Every graduate medical education (GME) program teaches you how to be technically proficient. The GME programs at Sinai Hospital teach you something more: how to be a leader.

Sinai Hospital is a world-renowned medical institution for those who dare to care bravely. It started with our founding in 1866: a 10-room hospital built to answer the needs of Jewish patients and doctors that others turned away. Today, our GME programs carry on that spirit, building leaders who can answer the call of their communities with courage, innovation and inclusivity. Future leaders like you will transform our healthcare systems for the better.
