A Unique Teaching Hospital Environment
The New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation’s 11 acute care teaching hospitals and vast network of outpatient primary care community health centers serve as a training ground for thousands of medical students, residents, fellows, young physicians and other health professionals each year. At HHC, physicians-in-training who come from the most prestigious medical schools in the region benefit from non-stop immersion and hands-on-experience in caring for patients.
