It is the mission of The Brooklyn Hospital Center’s Department of Emergency Medicine Residency Program to provide compassionate, patient-centered care; education that is student-focused and committed to academic excellence; and a thorough understanding of emergency medicine research and evidence-based medicine. We will work toward this mission in an environment that provides personal and professional growth. Applying depth and judgment to how we manage critically ill patients in the acute setting, TBHC's Emergency Medicine Residency prepares you for just about anything.

TBHC’s Emergency Medicine (EM) Residency Program is the first EM residency in Brooklyn. Our four-year training program has been accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education since 1989 and has a long tradition of excellence in both clinical and academic medicine. Our graduates have gone on to become leaders in Emergency Medicine.

The department includes 32 EM residents, 15 full-time faculty and three administrative assistants. We are academically affiliated with the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Medical Center. The Emergency Department (ED) is designated as a Regional Stroke Center and STEMI center.

The hospital is a 464-bed, full-service teaching hospital in the Fort Greene neighborhood near Downtown Brooklyn and serves over 70,000 patients per year. Our program is located in the heart of Brooklyn, which allows our residents to live anywhere in NYC and enjoy all the fruits of this wonderful metropolis. From art, music, and sports to food and much more, Brooklyn has it all. Our hospital is located near Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridge for easy accessibility to Manhattan.

We strive to encourage and enhance the development of Emergency Medicine physicians who will provide excellent, culturally competent care to all patients seeking their assistance. We intend to train our residents to apply current, science-based, patient-centered clinical practices through a variety of educational modalities. We maintain with confidence our residents will comprehend how the care they deliver will fit within the current standards of our national health system to ensure safe, cost-effective healthcare delivery for their patients.

Furthermore, we will promote nothing less than the highest standards of academic, clinical, and professional excellence and we will leave behind a legacy that will display our department’s passion and dedication to our specialty as well as our sincere commitment to the Brooklyn community that we serve.
