Resident Experience

One of the bonuses of NYU's residency program is living in New York City. With its central location in east midtown, NYU Medical Center offers easy access to everything the city has to offer.

World-class museums and star-studded theater and Broadway shows are just a bus ride, subway or cab ride away; not to mention Central Park, Greenwich Village and the shops of SoHo. And you can’t pass up the ubiquitous restaurants that span the complete range of cuisines, from the corner hot dog vendor to five-star gourmet dining and everything in between. Hip art galleries, trendy night-clubs, and music venues are always available for you to enjoy.

  • A department holiday party—our yearly black tie formal
  • Monthly and sometimes bi-monthly Happy Hours
  • Housestaff vs. faculty dodgeball tournament
  • Joint events with other departments

Members of the housestaff really do become friends for life.

Residents, family and friends in between rounds of dodgeball.
