Student Testimonials

"The opportunities afforded me at Mt Sinai were very unique and world-class. The possibility to shadow and be involved in the care of a number of patients in a number of professions was unlike I had experienced previously. The welcome intraprofessional collaboration for students was eye-opening and informative. My experience here changed how I will practice in the field."
