Message from the Program Director

Miriam Kulkarni, MD, FACEP | Program Director, Emergency Medicine

“I am proud to be a part of one of the most dynamic training programs in Emergency Medicine. Our mission is to provide high-quality, comprehensive and dynamic education to our trainees. We anticipate that residents who graduate from this program will not only be well trained, but will have a true understanding of the different ED settings and will be able to make an informed decision about what type of EM practice that best suits them.”


We expect that all of our graduates will leave St. John’s as strong, confident, and competent emergency medicine physicians. It is important to us that all of our alumni are equipped with the skills and clinical knowledge required to thrive in any type of emergency setting. We also know that growing one’s knowledge base outside of the ED is just as important as the clinical experience, and we realize that everyone learns differently. Our didactic curriculum combines lectures, small group discussions, flipped classroom exercises, simulation, labs and workshops. This enables us to reach a wide variety of learners and to keep the curriculum dynamic and interactive.

Physician wellness and resilience is very important to our faculty and to me. Because we incorporate physician wellness events, retreats, and team building exercises throughout the year, residents have time to establish connections with one another as well as the faculty, nurses, advanced practice providers and support staff. SJRH is situated in a prime location very close to NYC, but still in Westchester County, which is home to so many beautiful parks, lakes, and great activities.

Thank you for your interest in an EM residency position at SJRH—Westchester County’s FIRST and only EM residency!”
