Customized Training Programs
MSI has the unique ability to offer customized training programs for all members of the health care enterprise. Through our extensive health care delivery system, which includes seven hospital campuses, over 300 ambulatory sites, and our extensive graduate medical education and management platforms, we have the ability and resources to train individuals and large cohorts alike. Physicians, nurses, management, and non-clinical staff members all have the opportunity to participate in these programs, which may include, but are not limited to, leadership development, fellowships, and observerships. This important offering enables partners to hone their skills in real time with our expert clinical and administrative teams, and to more effectively use the expertise and best practices of Mount Sinai at their home institutions.
Examples of programs that we have hosted for our partners include:
- A two-day intensive course for 30 Spanish hospital leaders, which included clinical and non-clinical topics and facility tours.
- A one-day, intensive health care executive development course for 25 Chinese hospital leaders
- A three-day, intensive transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) observership and training program for a multi-disciplinary “heart team” from a health system in Colombia.
