Jacob Samuel Levine

Jake came to the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai from Dartmouth College, where he majored in the Romance Languages of Spanish and Portuguese. Before attending Icahn, Jake completed a Fulbright Grant in Medellín, Colombia as an English teacher at a local university and worked in the community as a soccer coach for a local NGO bringing teens from war torn regions of the nation to Medellín to pursue opportunities in education and athletics. He entered the MD program in 2016 through the HuMed (Humanities in Medicine) Program.

While at Icahn, Jake has been a leader/coach in the Riverside Park Adaptive Tennis program for athletes with disabilities as well as the Mighty Milers pediatric running group. In addition to acting as a Learning Community Student Leader for cohorts of 1st, 2nd and 3rd year students, Jake has been a teaching assistant for multiple pre-clerkship courses. He has also participated in the East Harlem Health Outreach Partnership (EHHOP), the ISMMS student-run free clinic as a Spanish and Portuguese Interpreter and has served as a member of the medical school's admissions committee.

Jake would like to thank his family, friends, and the many faculty members at Sinai who have made his medical education thus far a wonderful and rewarding experience.

Jake will graduate with his MD degree and continue his residency training in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation here at The Mount Sinai Hospital.
