In the Ronald O. Perelman Department of Emergency Medicine, we strive to provide all learners innovative state of the art education and believe that this is essential to maintaining the department's position as a national leader in Emergency Medicine. The educational programs in the Ronald O. Perelman Department of Emergency Medicine stretch broadly to engage students at all levels of training, including community outreach programs, undergraduate medical education, residency training, and numerous fellowship programs. Our mission is to provide a world-class educational experience at each stage of training.  Each of our educational programs are structured to optimize learning, and they often collaborate to provide truly unique and rich teaching opportunities. Our acclaimed faculty members include national leaders in Emergency Medicine and its subspecialties, seasoned researchers and scholars, and excellent clinicians and educators.

We offer multiple well-established fellowship programs, including training in Medical Toxicology, Emergency Ultrasound, Pediatric Emergency Medicine and Safety and Quality. We have plans to expand our unique training to include a Healthcare Leadership and Operations Fellowship that will be combined with a Masters degree in Public Administration from the NYU Wagner Graduate School of Public Service. We also plan to enhance our educational training by expanding our fellowship programs across multiple subspecialties, including Disaster Management and Social Emergency Medicine. We continuously strive to make our fellowships competitive in an evolving educational environment by offering the opportunity for various advanced masters degrees in addition to the traditional curriculum. We are committed to developing our faculty and trainees and graduate well rounded, highly trained physician leaders who go on to care for patients and serve their communities in a multitude of ways.
