Residents and faculty attend topic-themed weekly conferences each Wednesday morning. Conferences include lectures presented by faculty, residents, and guest speakers; board-style review questions; video lectures; journal club; EKG review; morbidity and mortality; quality improvement; and joint sessions with other departments. The residents frequently practice both clinical and procedural skills at the amazing IMSAL simulation center at Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx. Residents and faculty also attend all-NYC EM conferences hosted at different hospitals in the city. Throughout the year, residents also participate in oral board review sessions, with immediate feedback from faculty.
Since 2011, all NYC emergency medicine residency programs get together once or twice a year for a conference with the best presenters from the region. Our very own program director, Dr. Roger Chirurgi, who won the 2011 CORD Teaching Award gave a lecture at the inaugural ALL NYC EM conference in 2011. More recently, Dr. Dahlia Eid (Class of 2014) lectured at the 2013 ALL NYC EM conference.
Since the Fall of 2015, our chief residents have created a mini-book with weekly conference summaries (see below) that can serve as reference for residents and faculty.
