Graduate Medical Education Information for Incoming House Staff

Our graduate medical education experts guide incoming residents and fellows through the onboarding process at NYU School of Medicine.

As a resident or fellow, you are considered a member, or officer, of the house staff at one or more of our inpatient locations and affiliate hospitals: NYU Langone, including Tisch Hospital, Rusk Rehabilitation, Hospital for Joint Diseases, and NYU Lutheran Medical Center; NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue; and VA NY Harbor Healthcare System.

Our facilities provide exposure to public, private, and federal hospital systems, each rooted in a rich tradition of patient-centered care, medical innovation, and scientific advancement.

Hiring and Credentialing Process

As part of the hiring process, we provide you with a checklist made available through NYU School of Medicine’s New Innovations resident and fellow online management system (Kerberos ID required for login). Be sure to check your NYU Langone email—including your spam folder—and New Innovations frequently, and read all emails and documents thoroughly to ensure that you have completed all of the steps required to begin your training.

If you have any questions about the checklist and requirements, please contact the program coordinator of your residency or fellowship program.

Incoming house staff officers who participated in the National Resident Matching Program® Main Residency Match® receive an email from us in mid-April with more information about the hiring and credentialing process.

The Office of Graduate Medical Education maintains important policies relevant to the hiring and credentialing process and provides services that may be of assistance during the process. 

Road to Residency and Fellowships

Our “Road to Residency and Fellowships” booklet, which can be found on the New Innovations site, can help guide you through the onboarding process. As an incoming house staff officer, you should review this guide to familiarize yourself with the NYU School of Medicine community and the supportive resources available to you. Also, be sure to review any program-specific materials distributed to you during your orientation.

Get Involved

We encourage your participation in two organizations that play a vital role in graduate medical education.

  • House Staff Leadership Committee: Members of this committee provide feedback about their programs to hospital leadership and fellow house staff members.
  • House Staff Patient Safety Council: Members of this council are committed to ensuring quality improvement and patient safety.

For more information about these committees, contact your program coordinator directly.
