The Emergency Medicine Department at The Brooklyn Hospital Center is dedicated to teaching and research in Emergency Medicine. The practice of Emergency Medicine is guided by the tenets expounded by the American College of Emergency Physicians: Quality emergency care is a fundamental individual right and should be available to all who seek it.
Emergency Medicine Residency Training Program has a four-year format, EM-I, II, III, and IV. It is approved and fully accredited by the Residency Review Committee for Emergency Medicine of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. The program encompasses 48 months of study objectives designed to meet the special requirements for residency training in Emergency Medicine. All rotations are designed in 4-week blocks. Over the course of four years, two-thirds of the residents’ time is devoted to Emergency Department rotations (adult, pediatric, trauma).
In addition to formal core curriculum lectures, journal club and literature reviews allow residents to critically review a wide variety of research methodologies. The program has a full-time research director responsible for developing and implementing research projects. During their first year, residents are expected to begin to focus on a research project. By graduation, each resident is expected to produce at least one paper for submission to a peer-reviewed journal.
Applications are accepted only through ERAS. Application requirements include: USMLE 1 and 2 scores, medical school transcript, 3 letters of recommendation (Academic Emergency Medicine Physicians recommended), and Dean's Letter.
