Throughout its 60-plus year history, Einstein has become well regarded as an institution of excellence, recognized for the quality of care, management practices, the ability to innovate and for leading positive transformations in the field of health.
It is the knowledge, skills and experience accumulated over this trajectory that allow Einstein to become a leader in another field: Teaching.
Since the Faculdade Israelita de Ciências da Saúde Albert Einstein opened up in 1989, Einstein Teaching has seen continuous growth. Less than 10 years later, in 1998, the Instituto Israelita de Ensino e Pesquisa Albert Einstein (IIEP) was created, and continued to grow until adding a new arm in 2004, the Centro de Educação em Saúde Abram Szajman, dedicated to Teaching and from supported by the Szajman family from the onset.
Over the years, it has expanded to offer courses at all levels, including degree and non-degree graduate studies, MBA, medical and multiprofessional residency, refresher courses, Personalized Medical Refresher, Technical High School, online courses and corporate solutions, as well as scientific events focused on health-related topics.
This also expanded access by thousands of professionals from all over the country to training, certificates and refresher courses. They are doctors, nurses, multidisciplinary teams and managers, among others, who choose to add to their knowledge base for the benefit of patients, institutions, the development of the Brazilian health sector of their own careers.
The practical classes received reinforcements in 2005 and 2007, with the opening of the Centro de Experimentação e Treinamento em Cirurgia e o Centro de Simulação Realística, respectively. And, later, new Teaching Units opened up in São Paulo and other states, such as Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais.
High-level teachers, technologies, methodologies and cutting-edge teaching solutions are some of the unique advantages of Einstein Teaching. These elements enrich the knowledge trails that help health professionals keep up with the fast-paced changes and innovations in the sector, and with the growing challenges associated with factors such as population aging, new technologies and increased costs.
Transformations in the health sector are increasingly intense and rapid. Therefore, Einstein Teaching continues to invest in developing new courses, incorporating new methodologies and expanding its infrastructure.
For example, the new Centro de Ensino e Pesquisa Albert Einstein - Cecília e Abram Szajman Campus, open in 2022, is fully equipped to be one of the most advanced medical research and teaching centers in Latin America.
The Institution's Teaching department is an expanding universe, because this is Einstein's way of sharing what it does best: knowledge that adds value to professionals and helps boost the development of the Brazilian health sector.
One of the latest initiatives is the Population Health Education Project. With the potential for great social impact, the project provides methodologies and teaching resources for elementary school educators to work the classroom health contents in a playful and fun manner. It's Teaching, helping to bring a little bit of Einstein to every corner of the country.
