Mount Sinai EM residents benefit from a thriving research environment and a Research Division with a wealth of resources, including strong mentorship and administrative and statistical support. Dr. Lynne Richardson, the Director of the Research Division of the Department of Emergency Medicine, is a nationally recognized researcher in several areas. Mount Sinai is the only New York program with NIH RO1 funding, and it is the sixth ranked EM program in the country by the NIH.

The resident research curriculum is designed to provide residents with a foundation of research skills through didactics and hands-on work on research projects. A resident lecture series covers basic research concepts, and a monthly Research Division seminar is open to residents. Over the course of their residency, residents also have several blocks dedicated to research during which they either pursue their own ideas or participate in one of the faculty's exciting ongoing research projects. Active areas of research include health policy and access to care, neurologic emergencies, ultrasound, asthma, toxicology, informatics, stroke, Geriatrics/Palliative Care and Simulation.
