Dear Prospective EM Student Applicant:
I am excited you are considering an Emergency Medicine rotation at St. Barnabas Hospital.
As someone who did my residency here, and has worked at St. Barnabas for more than 20 years, I know you will be getting an exceptional educational experience. We serve a diverse population and you will have countless opportunities to be involved in the care of patients with wide-ranging disease states.
The 4 year EM Residency Program is a basic pillar of the Hospital, and has been educating EM residents for over 25 years. SBH hosts a 4th year elective, with over 140 students a year participating. It is a hands-on Residency and student rotation. The Department continues to grow and expand academically with Sections for Ultrasound, Toxicology, Critical Care, Research, and Simulation Medicine.
You will be involved with all the didactics provided by our residency including our Wednesday conferences as well as our daily educational morning reports. Our residency provides training for 60 residents and has initial accreditation with the ACGME as well as AOA accreditation. You will quickly sense the comradery between the residents and the attendings as we work together in our busy department that provides care for more than 95,000 patients annually.
We offer weekly faculty or chief resident run student only didactic sessions that focus on simulation, ultrasound and case presentations. You will have the opportunity to attend the Surgery department’s monthly Morbidity and Mortality conference and the weekly Pediatric Grand Rounds.
As many students who are choosing to rotate here do so in order to gain a better appreciation of whether they would like to do a residency in EM at SBH, we feel it is important to explain that the hospital will not support visas for EM residents. Of note, we also do not provide parking nor housing for students
The hospital is located about 20 minutes from downtown Manhattan and all that New York City has to offer is easily accessible from the hospital.
I look forward to meeting you.
