The Emergency Medicine Residency Program at NYC Health + Hospitals/Coney Island will train residents in the practice of providing safe and effective emergent care to more than 70,000 patients who pass through the Emergency Department each year. The program offers 16 positions in Emergency Medicine training, 4 residents per year. NYC Health + Hospitals/Coney Island is a community-based, full-service hospital in the southern part of Brooklyn with 371 acute care beds and 300,000 outpatient visits. Board certified emergency medicine physicians will provide 24 hour supervision of the residents in the ED. The diverse community of unique cultures offers this program an enriched opportunity to not only train residents in rendering care to mixed groups of people; but also exposes the residents to the varied habits and customs of many cultures. It is the goal of this program to create a physician who is comfortable in a busy Emergency Department setting; a patient advocate and a physician who wants to drive continuous changes in the practice of Emergency Medicine for the betterment of all they serve.
The program will make appointments for students with a strong interest in Emergency Medicine, who want to come to see the ED, or are looking to audition for possible placement in the residency. The student will have two days to see the Emergency Department and shadow an attending. We will accept up to 3 students per month. Applications will include hospital clearance, should be in by the 15th of the month, and will be processed on a first come, first served basis. This program will start in March 2015. Students will have to arrange for a place to stay and should have their own scrubs. An ID will be provided after completion of the clearance process.
