The program offers a variety of experiences for residents, a few of which are listed below. If you have a specific goal or endeavor in mind, we will help make it a reality.

Our residents benefit from a large amount of elective time and are able to choose from an unlimited number of both in-house and away rotations. Popular rotations include sports medicine, toxicology, administration, anesthesia, SIM, wilderness medicine, pediatrics, EMS, and ABC News!

Our faculty members have diverse fellowship and subspecialty training. With backgrounds and additional board certifications in Critical Care, Medical Toxicology, Pediatric Emergency Medicine, Ultrasound, EMS, SIM, medical journalism and administration, our residents have access to a variety of clinical and academic opportunities, networking possibilities, and mentorship throughout their training. Residents with an interest in subspecialty training and academic interests beyond Emergency Medicine receive ample support and guidance from our program and faculty members.

We are fortunate to have several passionate fellowship trained ultrasonographers among our faculty. Our ultrasound faculty hosts Bronx Sonowars, runs a yearly ultrasound boot camp, and oversees the first and second year Ultrasound rotations in our department. Our ultrasound faculty graciously host a monthly Ultrasound Journal Club for our residents and runs our dedicated EM Ultrasound Blog “Probetrotters”. The SJRH ultrasound department is heavily involved in research, collaborating with our residents to obtain frequent publications and opportunities to present at national conferences.

EM residents are granted a $1,500 travel fund for each national or international conference in which the resident has a publication accepted, presentation scheduled, or is granted a leadership role. We have funded resident travel to ACEP, SAEM, CORD, and other national and international conferences. Last year, several residents were fortunate enough to travel to Malta! Our residents have also represented our program at conferences in Croatia, London, Denver, Las Vegas, Nashville, San Diego, and Seattle.

This past year, our residents presented research at every major national conference, and were even able to travel abroad to present their research! Our faculty members are very active in research and scholarly activity, and always welcome the opportunity to provide mentorship, guidance and support to residents interested in pursuing scholarly projects. Our program is dedicated to allowing residents to pursue the academic endeavors that matter to them and offer a Resident Research Grant in order to support and encourage new projects, in addition to our standard research publication stipends and travel funding.

Debating pursuing an MPH? Had your eye on an MBA since before medical school and wish you had taken the plunge? Our HR department provides a tuition stipend to those pursuing advanced degrees and program leadership will work with you to fit an advanced degree curriculum into your training schedule.

Students from both Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine regularly rotate through our department. Outside medical students looking to set up a rotation and learn more about us are strongly encouraged to submit an application through VSAS. Having students in the department gives our residents the opportunity to provide mentorship to our rotators, and residents with a particularly keen interest in teaching are encouraged to get involved with aspects of running the student rotation and didactics.
