Research

Mount Sinai Beth Israel 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. In addition to academic research and scholarly projects, all of our residents participate in Quality Improvement projects that make a direct impact to our patient's care and an overall improved experience. We have monthly Journal Clubs that allow us to dissect the most recent and applicable emergency medicine literature.

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.

The Department of Emergency Medicine has a commitment to multidisciplinary research, and we collaborate with many other departments at Mount Sinai Beth Israel and throughout the Mount Sinai Health System, including

  • Health Policy
  • Critical Care
  • Geriatrics
  • Neurology
  • Palliative Care
  • Cardiology
