The Institute for Family Health’s Family Health Center of Harlem is the main outpatient training site for the residency program. The center serves over 6,500 patients annually from Harlem, the Bronx and other New York City neighborhoods. Like all Institute health centers, the site is equipped with a fully-integrated EHR system (Epic) and is JCAHO-accredited and recognized by NCQA as a patient-centered medical home.
The center offers primary medical care, mental health, dental and some specialty services to patients of all ages, regardless of ability to pay. The Institute’s model of integrated service delivery is designed to make it easier for patients to access needed care.
The Family Health Center of Harlem, housed at 1824 Madison Avenue at the corner of 119th Street, is a newly renovated state-of-the art facility. This 29,000 square foot facility serves as an integrated primary care, mental health and dental care home for Harlem residents, with capacity for over 80,000 visits annually.
Residents will receive inpatient training at nearby Mount Sinai Hospital, a 1,171-bed, tertiary-care teaching facility which is recognized as one of the nation’s most respected hospitals.
Residents may also elect to complete specialized rotations at primary care delivery sites operated by the Institute including:
- Two school based health centers located in New York City public schools: Washington Irving Campus (grades 9-12) and P.S. 57 (grades K-8).
- Eight part-time practices serving individuals experiencing homelessness. Seven of the sites serve adult populations and are co-located with soup kitchens or transitional residences; the eighth serves LGBTQ youth experiencing homelessness.
