Although the majority of residency rotations occur at NUMC, the program is structured to ensure residents are exposed to a wide range of pathology and acuity in various settings. For example, residents gain community hospital experience during their rotation at Mount Sinai South Nassau located in the charming town of Oceanside, NY. In addition, residents spend a month learning Toxicology at the New York City Poison Center.
Residents also have the opportunity to select elective experiences to tailor their residency program to meet their educational goals and objectives. Months of electives are offered in PGY3 and PGY4 years. Various elective options are available for residents such as Ultrasound, EMS, Pediatrics, Toxicology, Research, Critical Care, etc.
During the 4th year, our senior residents are given “Resident in Charge” shifts where their primary focus is managing the departmental flow of the ED and the junior residents.
Our Resident Conference is scheduled from 7:30am – 12:30pm. This time is protected from shifts in the ED so that residents can attend conference. Conference consists of lectures, small group work, journal club, procedure skills and more. Below are a few highlights!
- EKG – high impact review of foundational and advanced topics in EKG interpretation
- Journal Club – critical appraisal of cutting edge literature with expert research faculty
- Foundations – our framework to master the in-service exam/boards
- Small group work – this can vary from oral board review to procedural skills workshops
