Information for Current House Staff

At NYU Grossman School of Medicine, our graduate medical education experts are committed to supporting you during your residency or fellowship. We provide current house staff with a variety of resources throughout training. For more detailed information, contact the program coordinator of your residency or fellowship program or one of our staff members.

New Innovations

New Innovations (Kerberos ID required for login) is the resident and fellow online management system used by NYU Grossman School of Medicine. It is an essential resource for all house staff. Here you can find rotation schedules for the academic year, log your duty hours, complete and review core competency evaluations, keep track of your professional portfolio, and access other resources.

House Staff Wellbeing

Being a resident or fellow at a major teaching hospital is a rewarding but demanding experience: You work long hours and may face emotional, physical, and intellectual challenges on a daily basis. In order to provide patients with the best care possible, you also need to take care of yourself.

NYU Grossman School of Medicine is committed to providing resources to help our residents and fellows manage the daily demands of being a physician in training.

Mental Health Benefits

As a resident or fellow at NYU Grossman School of Medicine, you have access to an array of mental health benefits. Please contact with any questions regarding these benefits if you are on the NYU Langone payroll and have chosen one of the preferred provider organization plans from UnitedHealthcare®. You can also contact United Behavioral Health, a part of UnitedHealthcare®, at 877-294-1425.

If you’re on the NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue house staff payroll, visit the Committee of Interns and Residents website for more information about benefits available to you.

Psychiatric Consultation and Referral

Lia W. Okun, PhD, and Yona H. Silverman, MD, direct and serve as psychiatric consultants for house staff mental health services at NYU Langone, which include free short-term psychotherapy, group psychotherapy, and medication management and consultation.

We also offer referrals for lower-fee psychiatric and psychotherapeutic treatment. Our team works with human resources to understand medical insurance policies and inform house staff about available insurance benefits for psychiatric treatment. We are also available to consult with program directors who have questions or concerns about the wellbeing of staff members.
