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, orthopedics, 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 (the PGY specific goals and objectives) as well as the rotation specific goals and objectives for each assignment. 

Another unique part of our ED rotations is the opportunity to rotate through a variety of clinical environments from the traditional academic hospital to the community ED. There is one required off-site rotation- the toxicology rotation is at the New York Poison Control Center. Each block or rotation consists of four weeks. Vacation time is four weeks per year.
