Medical Students

In the Emergency Departments of NYU, Bellevue Hospital, and the VA Medical Center, we believe that well-organized and thoughtful student education is a hallmark of a truly world-renowned academic institution. Our Emergency Departments provide a fertile training ground for medical students at all levels. Beginning in the pre-clinical years, students at the NYU School of Medicine are exposed to clinical patient care in our departments via faculty mentorship programs and Emergency Medicine Interest Group observer sessions. Our department also organizes the pre-clinical introduction to intravenous catheter placement and blood drawing for the School of Medicine.

During the clinical years, our department provides a variety of elective experiences. We offer rotations in Emergency Medicine, Medical Toxicology, and Emergency Medicine Ultrasound to senior medical students from NYU and other LCME-accredited schools. All students are exposed to tremendous diversity in clinical pathology and patient populations by rotating through the different hospitals within our academic center.

For students interested in pursuing a career in emergency medicine, the Advanced Emergency Medicine Elective offers significant clinical responsibilities and exposure to the didactics that form the academic core of our department.  Students will attend morning report led by senior residents and experienced faculty, toxicology rounds, Wednesday didactic conference, advanced ultrasound sessions and simulation at NYU’s 25,000 square foot simulation center.  In addition to gaining valuable clinical experience and knowledge, your time here will inform you of what it would like to be an emergency medicine resident at NYU and Bellevue.

We look forward to working with you in near future!
