Graduate Medical Education 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

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 nyubenefits@nyumc.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 

Lisa Goldfarb, MD, is the psychiatric consultant for graduate medical education. Dr. Goldfarb 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. Goldfarb 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. Goldfarb by phone at 212-570-4052, by email at lisa.goldfarb@nyumc.org, or in person at 545 First Avenue, Greenberg Hall, SC2-179, in Manhattan. Program directors with any questions or concerns about their house staff can consult Dr. Goldfarb as well.

Get Involved

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.
