Emergency Medicine Residency at The Mount Sinai Hospital

The Emergency Medicine Residency at The Mount Sinai Hospital is an extraordinary, well-balanced clinical training that offers a complete training program for tomorrow’s leaders in Emergency Medicine.

Through training at both of Mount Sinai's complementary, high-volume clinical sites our residents graduate prepared to work anywhere.  We offer rich opportunities in all areas of Emergency Medicine, along with generous elective time and mentoring from our dedicated faculty, allowing residents to participate in cutting-edge projects.

Our Senior Specialty Tracks, or "mini-fellowships," allow you to develop extra skills and knowledge in an area of interest, setting the foundation for a multidimensional career.

As a result, our graduates consistently obtain sought-after academic, private, and fellowship positions wherever they choose to go after training, including the nation's tightest job markets.

We offer specialized training in the following areas of focus:

  • Critical Care
  • Global Health
  • Informatics
  • Pediatrics
  • Research
  • Simulation
  • Ultrasound

We offer a number of benefits as part of the Emergency Medicine Residency at The Mount Sinai Hospital.

Learn more about our benefits

The strength of our clinical education program is rooted in its innovative, balanced approach to instruction and learning. We expand our training platform by offering Emergency Medicine residents the benefit from significant exposure to both an urban public community hospital and a voluntary university tertiary care site. As a resident, you will gain proficiency in these complementary environments—preparing you on graduation to practice anywhere. Renovations and expansions in both Emergency Departments have enabled us to automate and become "paperless": Charting, ordering, retrieving lab and radiology results, and accessing old charts are all computerized.

The Mount Sinai Hospital

In The Mount Sinai Hospital Emergency Department, residents learn to treat very complicated patients across the spectrum of illness, from pulmonary hypertension to Crohn's disease to illnesses related to transplanted organs. The ED receives more than 90,000 adult and pediatric patient visits yearly. The ED houses a five-bed critical care area, a dedicated ED CT scanner, and four ultrasound machines for bedside exams. Residents enjoy the use of a newly renovated lounge across from the ED.

Elmhurst Hospital Center

Many who work and train in the Elmhurst Hospital Emergency Department consider it one of the best-kept secrets in Emergency Medicine. This hospital is a major Level I Trauma center and a main source of care for a diverse immigrant community. The ED sees about 130,000 patients per year including high volumes of both blunt and penetrating trauma. The trauma exposure at Elmhurst is much richer than that available in many other parts of the city, including Manhattan; three other EM programs send their residents to us for trauma exposure. The ED contains a four-bed area for critical medical patients and a three-bed trauma bay. Three bedside ultrasound machines are available.
