Curriculum

Our residency curriculum emphasizes direct emergency department time and increased critical care exposure. Clinical rotations outside the Emergency Department account for 25% of the residency. Required rotations are: pediatrics intensive care unit, EMS, anesthesiology, obstetrics and gynecology, toxicology, surgical intensive care unit, admin, medical intensive care unit and cardiac care unit.

The first month of residency will consist of a month-long orientation. During this period, the residents will be informed of all their assignments and duties in detail. They will also be oriented on the goals and objectives for each year of training as well as the rotation specific goals and objectives for each assignment. There are orientation shifts scheduled throughout the month in the Emergency Department and with EMS. 

Residents will spend three months off site to round out their experience. Our toxicology rotation is at the New York Poison Control Center in downtown Manhattan during second year. Also during second year, residents spend a month at Lincoln Medical Center to gain experience at an urban Level I Trauma Center. During their third year, residents spend one month at our community site, Englewood Hospital & Medical Center.

Each block or rotation consists of four weeks. Vacation time is four weeks per year.
