Montefiore Health System (Montefiore) and Yeshiva University (Yeshiva) recently announced that they have finalized a new agreement for Albert Einstein College of Medicine (Einstein), where Montefiore assumes operational authority and responsibility for Einstein, while Yeshiva remains responsible for academic oversight, including the granting of degrees. The agreement comes half a century after Yeshiva and Montefiore's landmark affiliation was forged to strengthen Einstein's excellence in science, education and clinical care.
Montefiore and Einstein's relationship is rooted in shared values and a commitment to social justice. This historic agreement will perpetuate Einstein as a top-tier medical school and research institution by deepening the bonds between Montefiore and Einstein. Further integrating the institutions' faculty, students, and staff, will align operations to best advance science and medicine and build on traditions of service and success.
