Observation & Short Stay Medicine Education
A dedicated observation and short stay unit bridging emergency medicine and internal medicine is a core concept in modern healthcare. NYU Langone’s Division of Observation and Short Stay Medicine has created an observation medicine curriculum to educate future clinicians in this emerging field and provide our trainees with the most up-to-date academic opportunities.
Observation and Short Stay Medicine Elective
Our Observation and Short Stay Medicine Elective allows residents in emergency medicine or internal medicine to join our team of physicians and physician assistants and experience our unique specialty. In two- or four-week rotations, residents learn how to appropriately triage patients to different levels of care and how to manage complex medical problems in a fast-paced environment.
By the end of the elective, residents have a broader understanding of what observation and short stay medicine is and develop insight into different fields of acute medicine, making them more well-rounded physicians. They also gain the confidence and skill set to practice this aspect of medicine when they become attending physicians.
Residents interested in applying can submit an Observation and Short Stay Medicine Elective application.
