Four years of training, 6 complementary clinical learning environments, 27 years in existence, 61 resident brothers and sisters, 100+ faculty teachers and mentors, 300,000+ patients served every year, and alongside the 8.5 million people sharing America’s largest, most diverse city. By the numbers, the NYU/Bellevue Emergency Medicine Residency easily stands outs. But our core identity is in the belief that outstanding clinical care, social justice, and innovation for the future of emergency medicine go hand in hand.
Clinically, the NYU Langone Medical Center and Bellevue Hospital Center – a leading academic medical center and the nation’s oldest public hospital – provide a complete clinical learning environment. Emergency Medicine is practiced in a wide variety of clinical settings, we strive to ensure our residents gain the skills and experience that will prepare them to practice in any one of them. We strongly believe in the 4-year format. Whether through senior time in critical care units, allowing PGY4s independently managing teams, or a toxicology rotation with any of our 11 faculty toxicologists, we make sure to use all 4 years to the fullest to provide a complete training experience.
In order to stay ahead of the rapidly evolving environment in which we practice emergency medicine, we offer a comprehensive didactic experience with nationally recognized educators. Our educational program includes a daily morning report delivered by our senior residents under the sagacious auspices of luminary senior faculty in emergency medicine. Every Wednesday morning, our Conference Series integrates scientific principles of active learning, small-group/workshop formats, and lively discussion covering everything from Core Content to the latest breaking advances in care.
Our care for our patients extends far beyond the boundaries of our emergency departments. Our Wednesday conference includes a dedicated Social Emergency Medicine curriculum, but we also get involved directly with our community. Between our Prevention and Education Partnership (PEP) education interventions with at-risk high school students and our mentorship program Project Healthcare, we believe that emergency medicine should be more than acute treatment and stabilization; it should be a partnership with our community to improve health in every way.
But beyond the numbers, the mission statements, the rotations or the locations, perhaps Francis W. Peabody summed it up best: “The secret of caring for patients is caring for patients.” Here at NYU/Bellevue, that still holds true as our core value: teaching our residents to always give the best care for anyone, anywhere, anytime.
