MSBI Emergency Medicine Residency is a 3-year training program. The clinical curriculum is organized in 13 four-week block rotations that comprise the clinical academic year. Highlights of the clinical experience include emergency department rotations at three different sites: two university affiliated primary and tertiary care centers, and a municipal city hospital level I trauma center. Trauma rotations are spread throughout the three years. Pre-hospital care experience is with the NYC Fire Department and NYC Emergency Medical Services, the nation's largest emergency services system.

Residents participate in non-emergency department rotations to provide maximum exposure to Emergency Medicine-relevant problems. Goals and objectives are defined for each rotation and clinical responsibilities are assigned to maximize their attainment.

Additionally, residents receive extensive training and clinical opportunity in emergency department ultrasonography. Residents are required to complete credentialing in ED ultrasonography prior to graduation.

A wide variety of choices are available to senior residents for one scheduled elective rotation in the senior year. Residents are permitted to do their elective rotation outside of MSBI, subject to approval by the program director and the office of Graduate Medical Education.
