A History of the Children’s Evaluation and Rehabilitation Center (CERC) at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, 1956-2008

Herbert J Cohen


The Children’s Evaluation and Rehabilitation Center (CERC) is the oldest continuously Einstein-operated clinical program. Its history has paralleled that of other achievements at Einstein, as well as changes in the service system, legislative mandates, and creation of programs for the developmentally disabled in both the Bronx and the United States. This article describes the growth and development of CERC, identifies several key faculty members and staff who have been major contributors to CERC’s operations and to related Einstein activities, describes its numerous accomplishments over the past 50 years, and indicates some of the future directions for its programs.
