Program Director, Emergency Medicine Residency
Congratulations on taking the next step in your career in emergency medicine!
We are very excited for you to explore and learn about emergency medicine at SBH Health System. We are a large urban ED with an annual census of nearly 100, 000 patients. We are a level II ACS certified Trauma Center in the Bronx with both blunt and penetrating traumas well-represented in our census. In addition, we have a very active bedside toxicology consult service run by our two board-certified medical toxicologists, as well as an RDMS-certified and fellowship-trained ultrasound director. Given our NYC location, we offer rotations with NYC poison control as well as NYC’s centralized EMS system. All of our faculty members are strongly committed to resident education. The emergency medicine residency is a fundamental pillar of the hospital and has been educating residents since 1991. It is a great place to learn with exposure to all of the illnesses and problems that practicing physicians see in both urban and community settings.
The solid educational experience at St Barnabas is getting even more dynamic. As a new program director, with more than 20 years of experience in emergency medicine residency education, I am excited to work with the faculty, administration and the educational leadership at SBH. We achieved accreditation status with the ACGME in 2017 as a 4 year EM program for 15 residents/ year. We participate in the NMRP match. We are always re-evaluating the curriculum and searching for ways to make a good system even better. Opportunities abound in our new role as the core clinical site for the brand new CUNY School of Medicine, in addition to our academic affiliation with NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine. The institution has a strong osteopathic tradition, and we are one of the few emergency medicine residencies that have achieved osteopathic recognition (through the ACGME), providing the option for DO’s to continue their training and for MD’s to learn additional skills during a residency here.
Our location is ideal. SBH is located in an area that allows exposure to a dynamic population in need of good medical care, while also providing access to truly ill trauma patients. Geographically, we are located in the Belmont section of the Bronx, at the end of Arthur Avenue, near both the Bronx Zoo and the Bronx Botanical Gardens, and a quick train ride from downtown Manhattan. Additionally, the cultural and social benefits of the Bronx and the rest of NYC are all a short distance away. Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, and the suburbs of NYC are all readily accessible through public transportation and have an inexhaustible array of activities to satisfy whatever you enjoy.
The SBH Emergency Medicine Residency has educational opportunities that are abundant and a superb and experienced faculty. We are also lucky to attract excellent residents who are accomplished and who are learning and contributing on a daily basis. If you are interested in becoming one of those residents, we are interested in meeting you. I look forward to the opportunity to get to know you and for you to know us.
