Information for Current House Staff
At NYU 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 (Kerberos ID required for login) is the resident and fellow online management system used by NYU 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 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 School of Medicine, you have access to an array of mental health benefits. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org 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
Marra G. Ackerman, MD, is the psychiatric consultant for graduate medical education. Dr. Ackerman provides free, short-term consultation and is available to speak with house staff members individually or in groups. She can also provide referrals for lower-fee psychiatric and psychotherapeutic treatment.
Dr. Ackerman works with human resources staff to understand medical insurance policies and is able to inform you about the available insurance benefits for psychiatric treatment.
You can reach Dr. Ackerman by phone at 646-754-4750, by email at email@example.com, or in person at One Park Avenue, eight floor, in Manhattan. Program directors with any questions or concerns about their house staff can consult Dr. Ackerman as well.
We encourage you to participate in the House Staff Wellness Committee. Members of this committee seek to identify and address issues related to the wellbeing and mental health needs of residents and fellows at NYU School of Medicine. For more information, contact your program coordinator directly.
