Book Description

The Mount Sinai Hospital was founded in 1852 as the Jews 8217; Hospital in the City of New York, but more than a century would pass before a school of medicine was created at Mount Sinai. In Teaching Tomorrow 8217;s Medicine Today, Arthur H. Aufses, Jr., chairman of Mount Sinai's Department of Surgery, and archivist Barbara Niss chronicle the development of the medical school from its origins in the 1960s to the current leadership.The authors examine the social forces that compelled the world-renowned hospital to remake itself as an academic medical center, revealing the school's departure from and subsequent return to its founders' original vision. In addition to a compelling history of each of Mount Sinai 8217;s departments, Teaching Tomorrow 8217;s Medicine Today  describes the school 8217;s methods for providing both graduate or resident training and post-graduate physician education.Recognizing Mount Sinai 8217;s central mission as a teaching institution, the authors close their account with perspectives of alumni and current students.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"This timely and comprehensive volume sheds badly-needed light on the complex interaction between police and communities of color. Few issues rank higher on the nation's justice reform agenda. Get it right, and we enhance police legitimacy and reduce crime; get it wrong, and we create inner city tinderboxes. This formidable compendium of scholarship will help us get it right." -Jeremy Travis, President, John Jay College of Criminal Justice
