Welcome to our Family

Welcome to NYPEM!

Our Emergency Departments treat more than 250,000 patients annually and hold Level 1 Adult and Pediatric Trauma Center designations.  NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center serves as the receiving center for the busiest burn unit in the country, the William Randolph Hearst Burn Center. In addition, our affiliations with the Hospital for Special Surgery, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, and NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital lend unparalleled breadth to the academic, research, and clinical experiences for our emergency medicine residents.

Q: What does your curriculum look like?

Our curriculum is comprehensive to make you an exceptional educator and a master clinician. Leaders in NIH funding and home to world-class researchers, Cornell and Columbia allow our residents access to research and scholarly activities in such areas as space medicine, clinical protocol development, medical error reduction, EM operations, burn medicine, stroke research, toxicology, telemedicine, SIM, disaster/EMS medicine, ultrasound, and narrative medicine. To see the curriculum breakdown over four years, click here.

Q: How can I find my niche at NYPEM?

We are committed to you finding your passion within Emergency Medicine – be it sports medicine, medical journalism, toxicology, global medicine, ultrasound, public health, education, research, etc. To that end, we have developed 17 distinct Academic Practice Tracks, each mentored by expert faculty, each with a longitudinal curriculum across four years. (For a sample APT track, see our EMS curriculum.)   And to support your interests, you are given three months of elective time during your last two years of residency.  You have the freedom to create and plan your elective time any way you like, so there is plenty of opportunity to develop into the Emergency physician you want to be.

Q: Where do your residents live?

A: Pretty much everywhere! With two home campuses, residents can choose hospital housing either on Manhattan’s Upper East Side or Washington Heights. But our residents also live throughout the city, taking advantage  of all that NYC has to offer.  To see a map of where we live, click here!
